Time for us to part was close at hand
I don't think that you quite understand
You know I just can't get you out my mind
Constantly thinking of you all the time
And although we had to say our goodbyes
I'll always hold on to you
Just one more magic journey, with you!
Latest Single 'Nostalgic Avenue' out now!
New Islands - 'Nostalgic Avenue' 11/6/20
It's always fun to reminisce about old times. This song is about that dreamlike moment you feel while cruising down Nostalgic Avenue [memory lane]. I hope this tune brings a smile to you!
I’ve been thinking about you,
I cannot believe It’s been so long.
Dreamlike moments passing through,
Every time I hear a little song.
Ooooooh, Nostalgic Avenue!
Cruising past the avenue,
Wishing time could slow down everyday.
So I’ll keep dreaming about you,
And never let those memories fade away.
Oooooooh, Nostalgic Avenue!
Take me back to good ol’ Nostalgic Avenue! X3
-Juanito (New Islands)

Black Lives Matter
New Islands Music stands with Black Lives Matter! I'm beyond outraged and emotional with all the things going on in the world today. I am completely against any sort of violence, racism, and discrimination to our human race. The murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police and the violent response from police against protesters is absolutely unacceptable. We must stand together to stop it! This has been happening and I'm so sick of seeing racism around the world. I'm tired of seeing other black lives being lost due to police "mistakes". I hope for the love of humanity you understand what Black Lives Matter truly means. I had a traumatizing experience in my life being stared at for my dark skin in 2003. I was refused service and stared down in a restaurant by the owners and everyone inside. The most UGLIEST feeling I've ever felt. Imagine being at a diner with your family...now imagine all the customers staring at you as you walk in. We approach the counter and are told to sit at a table with no smile or even a walk to the table.. everyone still staring. Dirty looks.. mad dogging us. Whispering amongst each other. Now imagine that same server NEVER coming back out. All while still being stared at..it happened so fast and we got up and left.. it was obvious that we didn't get help because we were Hispanic. It makes me sick that that kind of mentality is taught.. Racism is real and It's absolutely terrifying. I stand for the voice to be a decent human and fight this! It's very simple. I stand for George Floyd. I stand for all the other black lives that were lost due to police brutality. I cry in pain for the black lives that go through this. History can be really painful. Please read up using your smart phone all the info is at our fingertips. All lives don't matter until Black Lives Matter first.
I encourage you to have a voice and speak up!
