Isabelle Brown premieres her video for new single "What U Waiting 4"today via Complex. The track is off Isabelle's new '03' EP, which is also available today via True Panther & AWAL/Kobalt.
The video for "What U Waiting 4" is a vivid, DIY snapshot of Isabelle and her mates in their hometown of Brighton - perfectly capturing Isabelle's irrepressible personality, which shines brighter still on new EP '03.' The four-song collection was recorded between the ages of 12-14, wrapping orchestral, hip hop, R&B and Soul around Isabelle's stunning talent.
An old soul trapped in the body of a fearless fifteen-year-old, Isabelle Brown's story thus far is not that of your typical precocious teen star-in-waiting: hard graft, grit and vulnerability, those core values of true Soul music underpin her powerhouse vocals. Inspired by the rich emotions of Nina Simone
and the force-of-nature energy of Tina Turner, her mature perspective and deep found artistry is reminiscent of the old-school R&B influences found in A Tribe Called Quest. The singer-songwriter's curious and refreshing contemporary twist on these classic sounds is explored across her first mixtape 'Only Having A Laugh,' released in February 2018. The seven-song body of work relishes on love and laughter - themes that continue to take charge in Isabelle's music, and are further evident in the video for "What U Waiting 4."
Isabelle Brown plays her-immediately-sold-out-headline London show at Kansas Smitty's tonight.
