london's treasure recently released soulful, genre-merging single 'isolation'. inspired by the likes of sampha, moses sumney and blood orange, the artist pairs his affecting vocals with both acoustic and electronic elements. produced and engineered in his bedroom during lockdown, the track delivers lyrics about the discomfort one feels during self-isolation, also touching on the sense of duty felt by the world in giving up freedom for a just cause. listen here:
treasure was born in north west london, but relocated to the countryside in the early 2000's - a change that has affected his music today. inspired by artists like frank ocean, choker, homeshake, the internet and d'angelo, but with a sound that is uniquely his own, the artist pairs laidback production with soulful harmonies and wears his emotions on his sleeve.
