Issara can make any house a ‘Home’ with the soul in her latest single

With all the grace and beguile of a chanteuse fused with a retro soul aesthetic, the up-and-coming singer-songwriter Issara can make any house a ‘Home’ with her latest single, which offers a sanctuary of sound for anyone in search of solace.

By lyrically painting a protagonist who tends to the universal yet unseen needs that we all silently crave, Issara burned bright in the consoling warmth of the vignette of unconditional affection, which spins a narrative with threads of deep-rooted connection and understanding.

Home is a homage to the concept that home transcends physical spaces, echoing Issara’s journey across continents, and encapsulating the essence that home is indeed where the heart resides.

The production is steeped in a lush retro aesthetic, where the luminous timbres of the organ interlace with Issara’s vocals to create an ambience that is both comforting and soul-stirring. The hues of gospel spilling from the arrangement are a nod to her American church roots, bringing forth a nostalgic yet timeless quality that grips the listener’s soul. This track is not just heard; it’s felt, ensuring that by the outro, one’s soul is thoroughly sated.

With an ability to blend soul, pop, rock, gospel, French yéyé, and Thai funk, Issara has created a sound that is as diverse as her heritage. The song is a promise of what is to come from her upcoming debut album ‘222’, set for release on the befitting date of February 22, 2024.

As a mother of two and a beacon for late bloomers in the arts, Issara’s voice transcends mere melody to become a vessel of inspiration, encouraging others to find their place of belonging, their ‘home’, in whatever form it may take.

Home was officially released on November 17; stream it on Spotify.

Drew Colors – Home: The Hip Hop Equivalent to a Lullaby

Drew Colors is an independent Trap Hip Hop sensation like no other. The composition behind his sound is teaming lucidly transcendent synth pop effects. His new track Home is wonderfully melodic, falling into the constraints of melodic Hop with a dabbling of slow rap instrumentals. It follows a staggeringly slow beat looped around with his pensive vocal ability. It’s more like a lullaby than a hip hop track with drawn out keyboard compositions to fill in the gaps and take this track to a brand new level.

Through his music Drew Colors proves that you don’t need to create a hard hitting beat to create an intense sound. He nails the Trap sound through nailing his melodies and chord progressions throughout his latest track Home which are full of character. If you’re a fan of Madvillain, PM Dawn, De La Soul and Asheru you’re going to love Drew Colors genre-twisting atmospheric sound. Drew’s music will touch your soul in ways you wouldn’t have imagined were possible.
