Aksel Undest, whose stage name is Isak’s Island released their latest folk number- Someone I’d Recognise. The beautiful number banishes you to the woods, to roam around wildly and freely hopefully holding a lover’s hand. The entire song is poetry at its finest. The perfect cluster of words leaves you wanting more. The track enthrals you with an authentic charm that is very similar to Hozier but much less heavy.
Someone I’d Recognise has a genuine earnestness that melts your heart right from the very first strum of the guitar. Aksel’s voice slowly crawls in making the song bloom to life. He weaves together a warm tapestry while the guitar creates a soothing backdrop. The production of this song is top-notch, allowing the guitar work to shine just as much as his vocals. All while his voice gently floats above the instrumentals. The song takes you on a lazy river adventure while it ebbs and flows, it’s just you and the song, while the rest of the world is tuned out.
The rustic appeal of the song calls upon incredible imagery that is achieved in Leap Year. The softness of falling in love with a person is achieved both in the film and the track, making it the perfect song for the film. It would work beautifully within the playlist of the film. Isak’s Island gently makes you put on your rose-tinted glasses. This level of imagery embodied in every aspect of the song is a testament to the talent that Aksel holds and the places he will reach. Aksel has already toured across Europe and has proven that you ought to keep an eye on this talent because he is clearly going places.
