After two widely praised albums, ISQ are currently embarking on their third release. Their recent singles from the upcoming album – ‘Paper Doll’ and ‘Ode To Myself’ – show a consolidation and maturing of their own inimitable style – the use of space and dynamics along with Serra’s evocative lyrics that weave stories of a rare intensity. Each song creates a visual story-line—a movie in the listener’s head—that connects to all audiences.
ISQ will be releasing and touring their much-anticipated third album this Autumn and into early 2020. It is in a live setting that these musicians really show their jazz roots, expanding the framework of the songs and relishing in the musical spontaneity and interplay. Hear them at the Marine.
