Isola – “Said It Again”

The Brooklyn label Godmode has been on quite a roll the last several years. After departing from its noise/post-punk origins, producer/label head/former music journalist Nick Sylvester began working with young artists who each had some kind of idiosyncratic sound that blended old-school house and techno aesthetics with something new. He helped break artists like Shamir, Yaeji, and Channel Tres. And now Godmode is back with a new name for us to check out.

Isola is the project of Ivana Carrescia, a Las Vegas native who makes an icy and arty strain of dance music. A press release notes she’s influenced by everything from genres like dub techno and minimal house to the idea that music lives all around us — in “the howl of wind, the whirr of traffic, the blank hum of a refrigerator.” Her debut Godmode release is EP 1, which is out in October. As is often the case, Sylvester had a lot to do with the release, working with Carrescia on each of the EP’s seven tracks.

Along with the announcement, Carrescia has shared a new song called “Said It Again.” It’s restrained and mechanistic, but also oddly airy and comforting. Check it out below.

TRACKLIST:

01 “Ischia”
02 “Any Day”
