ISOLATION has inspired Isle of Wight band King Kuna.

The three-piece alternative heavy rock band is based on the Isle of Wight and have been together five years, played the Isle of Wight Festival multiple times and released several singles and EPs — but until have never released an album.

But having more spare time on their hands, and no live gigs, they have put their free hours to good use and written and recorded an album — called Isolation Music.

The band members are Jack Singleton, Alex Benson and Phil Legaspi, who are all in their mid to late 20s.

Jack said: "As the songwriter in the band, I write music in between working as a full time barman.

"Therefore, this rare time off during the Covid-19 lockdown was an opportunity to do something I've been trying to find the time to do for a while — write and record an album.

"Of course, there are issues with recording an album at home.

"Most bands and artists tend to spend hundreds or thousands of pounds on a music studio and expensive equipment and software etc. I only have a flat in Ryde, an old guitar amplifier and a cheap mobile app to record audio.

"Never-the-less, the album, titled Isolation Music, is now ready to be released on July 4, on all good music sites, as well as a music video for the first single, Mir, which will be released on June 30."
