Isak Thomas and The Stoop Boys – “I’m Not Going Anywhere”


Released today, “I’m Not Going Anywhere” is a consuming track from Boston-based producer/songwriter Isak Thomas. Isak Thomas and The Stoop Boys show a mellow, soulful sound here — complete with emotive wordless vocal harmonizing, late-night key work, and showings of brass and strings. The yearning from the get-go — “let me crawl into your bed, let me crawl inside your head,” — continues with authenticity throughout, resonating especially well as the keys assume a bouncy climax in the final half, ending with a Daryl Hall-esque charm.

The track comes via the project’s new album, Somewhere, Somehow, released today. Stream it in full below:
