Jamie Isaac is a singer-songwriter from London who's close pals with King Krule, and you can immediately hear the fact that the two grew up alongside one another in his world-weary voice. But on releases like 2013's I Will Be Cold Soon EP, Isaac has shown himself to have a more tender touch; his electronic, crackling soul is patient, calm and nuanced.
In Rinse's new signing Amane, Isaac has found a kindred spirit. Their collaboration "For Even My Mother Won't Find Me There" is a softly unravelling tune, balancing the most delicate of strums and chords over a minimalist backdrop—and yet somehow, the whole thing is infused with warmth. Producer Amane runs with the same south London crew as Jamie; "Jamie Isaac and I have worked together on music over the past few years," he explained to The FADER over email. "I perform live with him for his own music, and we have written pieces together in the past as well. This instrumental I wrote back in January last year. Jamie brought a beautiful floating melody and lyrics to complete the song." Catch it on Amane's Lost Weekend EP, out June 22nd.
