Oxfordshire multi-hyphenate Isaac Stuart drops soulful offering, “Saved,” a heartfelt exploration of being young and in love. With a powerful piano-led instrumental, the track leads straight into Stuart’s soaring yet soft vocals. With a strong blend of heartfelt lyricism elevated by choir-influenced backing vocals, the rich, slow-build production speaks of a maturity and understanding of humanity, beyond the rising star’s young age.
Taking inspiration from the glimpses of euphoria in the beginning of a relationship, the track is an ethereal slice of dreamy pop which weaves a coming-of-age tale of young love rooted in the strength of Stuart’s smooth vocal timbre. Built on Stuart’s strong musical foundation drawn from years of listening to his parent’s favourite music such as Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Donny Hathaway, seamlessly blending with his own modern-day influences, the track establishes the rising talent’s authentic brand of soulful pop.
On the track, Stuart likens himself to “a main character from an 80s film,” teasing out a complex myriad of emotions that comes from meeting someone so special that “you can’t quite believe they’re in front of you.” With quick strides into stardom from the release of his debut single last October, “Saved” sees the 22-year-old talent creates lush, goosebump-inducing sonic world that wraps us in a warm haze of romanticism.
Never failing to bring out emotion, both happy, sad and everything in-between with his penchant for emotive song writing inspired by his own experiences, this is only the beginning for the singer-songwriter, pianist & multi-instrumental pop artist who has a lot more ethereal soundscapes in store for the world. Setting himself up for an impressive musical journey framed by his earnest artistry, Isaac Stuart is undeniably one of UK’s hottest new talents in pop music.
