Isabella – ‘Tempo’
East London singer songwriter and instrumentalist Isabella makes an impressive debut with ‘Tempo’, a mesmerising serving of lo-fi soul.
Hazy keys and a crunchy hip hop beat paint a late night backdrop for Isabella’s velvety vocals to light up with intelligent lyricism and delicate high notes.
In a scene brimming over with electronic sounds and production for the sake of production, this is a refreshingly stripped back affair, relying on a small but potent handful ingredients to create a rich atmosphere and mood.
Having grown up surrounded by music with a dad as a jazz/blues musician and a mum as a vocalist, it would seem as though music was the natural path for Isabella who at a young age already seems extremely in touch with herself as an artist.
If you’re a fan of this the good news is that there’s a second single dropping very soon.
