Following her acclaimed debut releases ‘Don’t Tell’ and ‘Intro (Creatures of Habit)’ last year and early this year, emerging artist Greta Isaac beams into 2017 with her most innovative track yet in ‘You’.
The young welsh artist continues her beguiling mix of inventive, electronic production and acoustic instruments – mandolin, acoustic guitar and double bass are all present here. It’s Greta’s defiant, siren-like vocal however that cuts through, pronouncing her obsession, darkly and sweetly over the track.
Greta’s off-beat, avant-garde visuals for her previous releases immediately placed her in a category above her contemporaries, and whilst musical references point to Regina Spector or an early Julia Byrne, her imagination when it comes to visual output is excitingly unique.
Speaking on the track, Greta states: “’You’ is an exploration into obsession and infatuation… The character is infatuated with another person to such an extreme that she abandons her own identity to embody the other person. She quite literally wants to BECOME them. It’s about how a simple little obsession can develop into something destructively extreme.”
