ISLE are a dream pop duo on a journey. Through their music, they create a soundscape within which the listener can spend their days. I would happily sacrifice a few weeks living in the world of their latest release, Indigo Sky.
From the moment it begins, it’s the sort of song that flows through your body, streaming to each area and relaxing the senses with ease. The intoxicating lead vocal is impressive and dances from the speakers like a neon light show. Several sections of the track feature harmonies that go together like water and ice; made of the same substance, yet with a distinct and individualistic quality which makes them much better when consumed together.
Musically, the song is reminiscent of a summer’s day spent with friends. An occasion you remember for years and wish you could go back to again and again. Right now, the weather is quite temperamental. One day we’re living through a tropical thunderstorm, the next, a Balearic holiday. Indigo Sky is here to remind us that we can always escape to a special place inside ourselves.
If this is anything to go by, ISLE’s 2021 album is going be hugely impressive. For now, enjoy the sweet, summery vibes of Indigo Sky.
