Isadora – “Medications”

LA-born, New Jersey-bred 21-year-old songstress Isadora makes haunting, alluring “basement pop.” Her latest single “Medications” is an exemplary taste of her darkly shaded, mesmerizing pop craft. She sings of coping methods that can be equal doses damaging and recuperative over a woozy, low-end grumble broken up by a playful 8-bit flourish. She laments, “If there’s one thing that I know how to do, it’s self-medicate,” noting that she’s “always ready for just one more dose.” The unresolved tension between the low rumble of the beat and her gauzy, floating vocals balances the track as both accentuate the edgy mood of the song, and her lyrics string everything together for an evocative romp. Listen.
