There is not much left to the imagination on the mesmerizing “la línea será.” Isabel Crespo Pardo’s performance bleeds with vulnerability and openness as the singer navigates whimsical arrangements tinged with midnight drama. Fragmentary instrumentation from Afarin Nazarijou,Skyler Hill, and Seajun Kwon create the perfect simmering foundation for Pardo’s inflections. An air of calm determination shimmers in all directions adding gilded flecks to the song’s aural architecture. Pardo’s voice is lifted, a captivating beacon that pulls us together. A haunting and beautiful track.
Isabel Crespo Pardo’s new album, el rostro (des)cubierto will be released by Lobby Art on June 30. Stream below and pre-order HERE.
