Isidore, if you’re unaware, is Jeffrey Cain (formerly of Remy Zero) and Steve Kilbey (The Church), with the former on instrumentals and the latter lending vocal expertise. The collaboration came as a surprise, after Cain passed along an instrumental album to Kilbey only to receive it back later with vocals added in. The duo is now poised to release Life Somewhere Else on Valentine’s Day.
On the album you can find “Song Of The City”, a tune that is mesmerizing with Kilbey’s deep baritone and dreamy with Cain’s airy instrumentals. Immediately we are given an entirely memorable vocal hook with the song’s chorus; it’s one part folk yet seething with pop sensibilities. This one will get in your head and force you to hit the repeat button a few times.
Check out the song below and look for Life Somewhere Else on Communicating Vessels on February 14.
