about

This track is about embracing the unknown and features: the sea, a wind-up toy, a ukelele, vocals, some seagulls, a fog horn, claps, a kick drum, scatting, children running on the beach and a creaking boat.

This track is the leading single from the new EP, Seed Bud Bloom, which is coming out in May '15.

lyrics

Change upon the breeze,
telling me that it is time
to read the signs,
and follow my nose again.
One too many swallowed dreams,
knocking at the door again
and it is time,
to answer them,
answer them.

Big breath in,
and dive into the dish of imaginings.
Arms open like paper planes
into the unknown.

Will we sink or swim,
or learn to give in to the tide?
Welcome forth the untold,
and take it in our stride.

All the promise of possible,
wrapped up in a ribbon bow,
is dangling
at the end of a piece of string.
All the gifts of 5 senses,
sitting on a fence between
a field of earth,
and a field of green.

Lick your lips and take a bite
of all that is waiting.
Play your cards right and you just might
take flight.

Will we sink or swim,
or learn to give into the tide?
Welcome forth the untold,
and take it in our stride.

Kismet on a fragile breeze, who can tell what she may bring.
Kismet on a fragile breeze, who can tell what she may bring.

Isolde is a singer-songwriter/producer based in Bristol. She crafts songs with found trinkets, field recordings and surreal stories of the everyday, where the urban beats of her cityscape hypothesise with the forces of nature. Isolde's work has been compared to Hanne Huckleberg, Tune-yards, Cosmo Sheldrake and Coco Rosie, and has been flavoured as a jazz-tinged-dreamfolk-toytronica. ... more
