“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.” – Alphonse de Lamartine
I found this album by Isaac Dunbar quite randomly. The title really intrigued me, and I am pretty sure I have listened to a few of his songs before, but never a full album.
At sixteen Isaac is beyond talented for his age. He writes, produces, and performs all by himself. You can tell that each lyric has a meaning behind it, and it is up to you to dig it up. He started posting his own songs on Soundcloud at the age of twelve and has only grown since then.
Now let me jump into this album in particular, to say the least, it did not disappoint. The way Isaac uses his voice reminds me a bit of Billie Eilish, the presence of bass in his music is substantially lower than Billie’s though. So if you hate that about her music you should be good with this.
Something about this album and how it grows makes you want to listen to it over and over again. You can feel the passion and almost a sense of urgency grows and almost dies throughout the album. All the while his voice stays pretty calm and chill, it is quite an interesting blend of experiences.
If you have the chance and the time go and listen to this talented kid before he gets too big.
