London-based indie-pop musician, producer, and songwriter Isla Rose has shared her debut single, the introspective and irresistibly catchy “My Adeline.” This is Isla Rose’s first single from her upcoming debut EP, No Answers which will be released later this year.
Speaking about “My Adeline” the artist writes, “My Adeline was one of the first songs that I wrote and began to produce. It started with a voice-memo of me hand-drumming a beat and singing a melody that was stuck in my head. This turned out to be the first verse and the pre-chorus for ‘My Adeline.’ It was like the song already existed…”
“In the song, I am singing to My Adeline. My Adeline alludes to a past self – a younger, more naive, innocent me. Now a stronger, wiser, educated, traveled and worldly version of me is trying to communicate with her to steer her in the right direction and protect her from hurt. I’m trying to tell her I’ll be there through it all no matter what and keep her strong through the battles she’s facing.”
“I wanted the video to be dark, replicating the time periods of my life that this song is referring to,” Isla says regarding the video. “There is a scene in the bridge with a projection of a small girl running on the beach who is a younger version of me, naive and innocent… it is a symbol of my older self attempting to guide my younger, more vulnerable self.”
