Greta Isaac wants to create music that is fun to listen to and sensual in terms of sounds and textures. For her new EP she took elements of her life and exaggerated them, bringing pop songs into being that are extreme, relatable and enjoyable. Her newest single "Pessimist" ticks all these boxes and you'll find yourself screaming along sooner than you think.
"I wrote this song in my home in London with Martin Luke Brown and Matt Zara. We’re all very close friends so it was really relaxed day of playing each other some music and messing around with ideas. I had to run to my bar job in the evening so I quickly recorded the guitar part and we came up with ‘Pessimist’ as the title. I remember leaving the house feeling so creatively fulfilled and excited, and I knew this was what I wanted my EP to sound like," Greta says about the single. Its message of self annoyance is wonderfully illustrated by a galopping rhythm and the affirmation punchlines. "Anthemic, fun and textured. Euphoric with sad undertones while I try and unpack my very millennial confusion about myself and the world around me."
"Pessimist", just as predecessor "Power", is taken off of Greta Isaac's new EP, coming early spring 2021.
