Gold Coast duo WE ARE ISO came together during the pandemic last year, comprising of vocalist Straalen Mccallum and DJ/producer Jessy Mulholland, aka SVLT.
It’s a somewhat unlikely combination – Mccallum is an acoustic-oriented singer-songwriter while Mulholland has largely operated in electronic and club scenes – but their varied perspectives have resulted in a fairly unique collaboration.
Their new single ‘Love n’ Trust’ – which we’re premiering here at Music Feeds before it officially arrives this Wednesday, 16th June – is an infectious dance floor filler from the word go. A tech-house bop inspired by the likes of RÜFÜS DU SOL, Running Touch and Hayden James, the track is anchored by a hypnotic bassline and lush synths, underpinning Mccallum’s smooth vocals as he narrates a one-sided relationship.
“The couple are stuck in a loophole with no escape – even at their worst, when they fight and cheat on each other, they stay together, hoping one day they could just let it go,” explains Mulholland of the song’s genesis.
“This song is groovy as, with a heavy festival vibe. You can’t help but dance to it and the hook gets stuck in your head! We are so proud of this one!”
