Island of Terror was recorded over a number years and in a variety of studios, bedrooms and backrooms. It draws on such disparate musical threads as Giorgio Moroder, Serge Gainsbourg, Chopin, Steve Vai, Wendy Carlos and Syd Barret. It’s a record that weaves fantastical tales with the real, leaving the listener perplexed and enthralled in equal measure.

It was a few years later she connected with a group of producers and "Fears Of Yours & Mine" became her latest single.

With momentum building, Kid Kapichi dropped their hotly anticipated EP Sugar Tax in July 2019. In the latter part of the year, the band made their mark at Reading & Leeds Festivals, sold-out headline shows in London and Brighton, and toured Europe with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in the autumn.
What emerges from beneath the waves of the album’s psychedelic dream pop are bittersweet themes of a year lived in suspended animation: anticipation, separation, regret, revelation.
The six song self-titled EP was recorded over a two-week period in early 2020 at Vision Quest studios with the help of former Brian Jonestown Massacre member Rob Campanella and local psych-rock outfit Triptides. All songs were written during the fall of 2019 which Ray recalls as “some kind of writing frenzy” that had been preceded by a long period of indifference towards music. Most of the EP’s songs were recorded live, with overdubs punched in towards the end of the sessions. Recording sessions for a follow up release are scheduled for November.
