Isaac Gracie has quickly become a reliable name when it comes to releasing songs of depth, honesty and quality. Two EPs, one self-recorded and one live, and a towering recent Markus Dravs produced single (All In My Mind), all had a very recognisable stamp of Isaac’s ear for melody and way with words.
This new EP was largely recorded at London’s Eastcote Studios within the past couple of months, and whilst it doesn’t signal a change of direction from Isaac wholesale, it certainly suggests a versatility. The roaring title track, streaming now, sounds as though it could be soundtracking an old spaghetti western before it explodes with rage on its chorus line.
Isaac orbits a musical world that is almost oversubscribed with talented young voices, but in truth he acts as the antidote to all of them. A modern musician who takes the tested inspirations of love and hurt, and portrays it vividly with that moreish, keening vocal of his. He’s the real deal, and The Death Of You And I EP is his most realised body of work yet.
