Isak’s Island is the artist-project of singer-songwriter and guitarist Aksel Undset. Inspired by artists like Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen, Aksel explores the folk scapes with magical realism and nostalgic emotions. His poetic lyricism unites with live melodies to paint an idyllic picture in real time. Listening to his music is an exercise in wonder, creativity, and humanity. Listeners of Sufjan Stevens and Andrew Bird are sure to enjoy the rich instrumentation and lyrical marvel of this artists. 

The artist has just released his sophomore album, Fallen Anchors on the Sea Bed. With highland aesthetic and mystique, each song is a well-written folklore. Taken from this collection is the track, Someone I’d Recognise. Mild guitar flotations fill the ear as if carried by a breeze. Aksel progressively layers it with chunky textures of the ukulele and the ringing light of banjo lines. Aksel’s husky baritones forms against this melancholic backdrop, aligned with the lush sentiment of the velvet violins and ethereal synths. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
