Isabelle Mettle charted new constellations of soul with her interstellar track, Jupiter and Mars

Isabelle Mettle

In the cosmos of contemporary RnB, Isabelle Mettle’s latest single, ‘Jupiter and Mars’, is a celestial defiance of the ordinary. From the outset, the track asserts its uniqueness with stabbing synths and spacey euphonic iconography. The influence of Erykah Badu, Prince, Jill Scott, and Blood Orange is palpable in Mettle’s work, yet she transcends these inspirations to assert herself as a firebrand of a visionary.

Mettle, a London native, brings the city’s rich musical heritage into play in her latest release by weaving the rhythmic beats of RnB with the smooth sophistication of jazz. Her soulful sound is a reflection of an artist who has not only mastered her craft but also knows how to push boundaries. The track’s transition from a strikingly future-embracing intro into a melodious groove is seamless, with Mettle’s divine vocal lines adding a touch of classic soul to the stylistically rich composition.

What sets ‘Jupiter and Mars’ apart is its ability to straddle genres effortlessly. The track sits comfortably between the raw, unfiltered energy of Brooke Combe and the ethereal, dream-like quality of Warpaint. Mettle is not just following trends; she is setting them in constellations of her own making.

Jupiter and Mars will come into Earth’s orbit and hit the airwaves on February 23rd.

Parsa Sabet has taken the evolution of RnB one step further with the Synth Pop hit “Yourself”

RnB Soul and Synth Pop seamlessly entwine in up and coming artist Parsa Sabet’s standout single “Yourself”. Expect euphorically entrancing synth lines paired with passion-soaked RnB Pop vocals in one of the most distinctive urban soundscapes we’ve heard in 2020.

Yourself is just one of the singles in Parsa Sabet’s 5-track EP SAD BOYS DON’T DROWN which only took the artist 5 days to complete. You’ll need to hear the track for yourselves before you colour yourselves impressed with the speed of the production.

Parsa Sabet found the perfect balance between ambience and rhythmic energy with the fresh immersive hit which has significant commercial appeal. It’s not all too often we can recommend the same artist to fans of RnB and fans of Synth Pop, and it’s certainly not every day we hear a track simultaneously offering ingenuity alongside accessibility. Get them on your radar.

You can check out the official lyric video to Parsa Sabet’s single which dropped on March 31st via YouTube.
