WE REVIEW THE LATEST SINGLE FROM ISAAC NEILSON – FLYING

Isaac Neilson releases new single ‘flying’, a punching number that really emphasises his brilliant vocal ability.

Drawing in listeners with beginning piano, and a softer sound, it quickly launches into a powerhouse of a tune, building throughout the song as Neilson croons “I’ll be fine” and he’s definitely starting the year off positively.

The inclusion of the piano works seamlessly with the drums adds a real bit of depth to the song and this elevated energy makes this tune a real good listen.

Since releasing his last single, ‘Dead Set Dance’ in 2023, Neilson is now really leaning into his abilities and learnt from his performances. Starting off producing songs in his bedroom, Neilson is now releasing singles, and playing festivals on the same stage as the likes of Jake Bugg and Stereophonics.

He reached the semi-finals of the International Songwriting Competition and was long-listed for the Music Producer’s Guild “Self-Producing Artist of the Year”, I’d say Isaac’s potential is huge, and he is starting to capture his own sound.

‘Mired in doubt, yearning for lucidity’, “Flying” a track in perpetual conflict with itself, as Neilson explores the suicidal thought through the lens of escapism, wrestling with ideas about mental health through a window of impermanence.

It holds a hopeful tone, a powerful message of his own pushing strength powers through the whole song.

“The lyric ‘All is fleeting nothing’s gonna break me down’ encapsulates the whole track”, Neilson explains.

“Musically it was a conscious effort to incorporate more grunge elements into my sound, pushing the genre into a more delicate direction, the soft piano acting as the antithesis to the raw vocal intensity and the growling guitars that backbone the track”

Neilson is celebrating the release of “Flying” with a hometown single launch at the Ale Stop in Buxton Derbyshire on 26th January, and it can be found on all streaming platforms!
