Alternative R&B artist Isabelle Mettle has announced her upcoming two-track single is set to be released on 21st April. The title track is ‘Dreamz’ and it’ll be joined by an as-yet-unannounced second tune. Both tracks touch on the themes of love, loss, and self-growth.
Talking about the release Isabelle Mettle says “I wanted to create something which focussed on the feelings associated with loving something or someone, and how they can change over time. There are only two emotions that humans can really experience — love and fear. Love is so integral to the human mind… it made sense to me to put out something which walks you through the duality of love – the fun experienced whilst discovering the feeling, and the rediscovery of self, afterwards.”
Unlike most of Isabelle Mettle’s tracks, which are all written and produced by herself, these two tracks are brought to life by the beautifully complimentary production of Jacob Weinreich. The maxi-single was also mastered by Stephen Kerrison (Weird Jungle), and the cover art was designed by Kate Dodd, merging oil paint and digital art together.
