Ella Isaacson's "Out of My Head" Is an Ambitious Pop Stunner
The turnstile of excessive pop is always clunky, pressing against you uncomfortably and mostly just getting in the way of where you want to go. To make it fluid, a proper transition from one place to another is about good design, and Ella Isaacson and her latest single "Out of My Head," creates a blueprint for those ambitious steps.
Ella's voice and lyrics are clearly emotionally worn, a tattoo of experiences that can be wrenched out by her multiple octave voice in a way few artists can. All of that is on full display on this second single, previewing her forthcoming EP. With an ambitious sound and anthemic chorus (Ella credits Jack Antonoff with some of the inspiration) Ella's narrative of having an outer body life path will resonate with most of us contending with imposter syndrome.
"You set out on a path in life and you do all you can to set yourself up for success in life, go to the right schools, read the right books, meet the right people, but what happens when you're not where you thought you'd be by now? When you've hit that point where you think 'you' should be 'figured out' and you're just not? That banging your head against the wall, frustration where you wonder why isn't this all going according to plan and our brains start to spiral in those moments, that's what I wanted 'Out of My Head' to be just like," shares Ella.
Much to revel in and very revealing of her pivot to a more natural, native sound, "Out of My Head" confirms that Ella merits the attention she's now getting... Hopefully you can keep this song out of your head, it is a sticky jam, as Ella is here to stay.
