Alright I’ve already posted about the upcoming Izzy Johnson album, earth tones, coming July 2nd via Driftless Recordings, but the newest single “existing” warrants me posting about it once more. “existing” is a more upbeat slice of floating acoustic magic compared to their previous single “seeing”, but still containing just as much auditory magic, with flowing sheer ribbons of voice cradling steadily plucked acoustic guitar. A calming, auditory salve.
The track as a whole has a great pace to it, with additional instrumental and arrangement flourishes steadily joining the frame as the song progresses. One could even say that this track is an embodiment of the tweet format “open for a surprise”, as a flute-backed, lounge-esque breakdown opens up for the last minute of the song, laminating the feelings of free happiness that had been bubbling up around the track in the previous four minutes.
earth tones is coming via Driftless Recordings on July 2nd – pre-order the album HERE.
