I’ve been hooked on Brighton’s lo-fi wizard California Carpool from the moment I first laid ears on his dreamy gems. But it seems like that journey has unfortunately come to an end. Isaac strips back the moniker, and dives head first into a new musical endeavor using his given birth name. A more honest, personal, and open approach perhaps?
Judging from his two first demo cuts ‘drownwithu’ and ‘halah (mazzy star)’, he has taken a much more laid back and discreet stance to his craft, toning things down a notch, and letting the music breathe some more. The result are delicately crafted, subtly smooth ballads, which can be taken as an easy listen, or a more introspective deep dive into the mind of the young lo-fi wizard.
Isaac sees them as a taste from what’s to come, as he prepares to release an EP early next year. So keep your eyes peeled if you dig what you hear.
