The roots of Suzi Island go back to when Hugh and Matt were teenagers living in Hampshire. Bonding over Radiohead, R.E.M.
and Arctic Monkeys, the duo formed various bands together before relocating to Brighton. Hugh had started off playing guitar but found an even bigger passion for the wider soundscape of production. Matt’s love of music was driven by “the urge to create something and express myself. It’s something you can rely on and you can do it whenever you want.”
In Brighton, they befriended singer-songwriter Carlie. She grew up loving the stage but realised the jazz hands style of performing wasn’t for her, and instead focused on writing songs and busking. “It wasn’t until I met Hugh and Matt that I found what I was looking for,” she smiles. “I started going around to their house and never left. We all gelled and we’re like family now.” Naturally they share a playlist, which spans Lauv, Mitski, Sigrid, Billie Eilish and Glass Animals.
Suzi Island are now preparing to release their EP, which promises to solidify their eclecticism into a cohesive sound. They’re already winning over champions of new music having played Abbie McCarthy’s Good Karma Club, while ongoing support from BBC Introducing will reach a new peak when they record a session for Melita Dennett. Those big moments keep on coming.
