balloons don’t float here – [Isaac Dunbar]
From Billie Eilish to Isaac Dunbar, we’re beginning to see some of the next generation’s most exciting new talents emerge at ages we never before could have imagined. Now just 16 years old, one of my personal favorite examples — the aforementioned Isaac Dunbar — is roaring with momentum and headed quickly toward the spotlight, and the craziest part of it is, he looks, sounds, and feels ready. Today, this couldn’t be better proven than with the Barnstable native’s new EP, balloons don’t float here. 8 tracks long, balloons don’t float here is a display of pop mastery. From chart-bound singles to beautiful, polished odes to reflection and love, Dunbar’s unmatched artistry refuses to back down from anything, and quite clearly, his preparedness for notoriety is perhaps his most fascinating characteristic as an artist. Not one song on this one misses the mark or breaks the project’s fervent sense of emotion, making for an unbelievably cohesive and well-executed vision from front to back. That said, Isaac Dunbar was meant to be a star, and balloons don’t float here is a step in the right direction toward such. Tune in now, because come the end of the year, Dunbar’s name is destined to be everywhere!
