Evan Isaac – “Preparations”


Impressing prior with standout tracks like “Heart of Elation” and “Love Always Surrounds Us,” Evan Isaac‘s latest effort “Preparations” stirs with a laid-back and nostalgic alt-rock emphasis. The track immerses with its assortment of twangy guitar conciseness and more warming, chugging rhythm guitars. The invitation to take “a seat on my meditation pillow,” plays invitingly, with a lusher vocal layering in the final minute exuding a psych-friendly soaring that satisfies into the conclusion.

Per the artist, the release “started as a demo in my apartment and came together in the recording studio with Al Hemberger. I finished the lyrics during and in between sessions. The song explores feelings of hopelessness and doubt.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.
