Isaac Dunbar has just dropped his debut EP balloons don’t float here. The rising American indie-pop singer has been known for his tuneful “bedroom pop” sound, illustrated in two previously released singles: “Alien” and freshman year.”
The self-taught 16-year-old artist cultivated his musical talent early on, learning how to record through YouTube tutorials in his bedroom during the first few years of high school. The result is an 8-track EP filled with lo-fi synths, scrappy instrumentals and soulful vocals that all tie in together to deliver a candidly crafted DIY sound. balloons don’t float here also comes with a music video of the fifth track on the EP “ferrari,” which follows Isaac waking up in a strange town full of anthropomorphic objects.
