Victoria-based quartet Isobel Trigger scored airplay and Vancouver Island Music Awards nominations for singles off 2009 debut Islands. They're preparing a new EP, Nocturnal, for a July 29 release, and have just delivered a new single, "Tiger Shark", that whets our appetite. There's a polished modern rock feel to their sound, and singer Felicia Harding's voice has a trace of Dolores O'Riordan (Cranberries) to it. They play Victoria's Royal Theatre on May 24. A band to keep in your sights.
