[Cape Town, South Africa] - ISLA makes her debut as a solo female artist with the stand-alone single ‘Break The Fall’ composed by herself and produced by HEproducedit (Howard Edward) at Cosher Recording Studios.

The track is a bittersweet contemporary/alternative pop song in which she shares her personal experience in a long-distance relationship. It explores the doubts and insecurities that physical separation brings, but the ultimate hope that love will overcome. ISLA is making a huge step in her solo career and is set to explore different genres as she releases more original content throughout the year.

20-year-old singer-songwriter Isla Sutherland (‘ISLA’) has been making waves in the Cape Town music scene, performing regularly at a wide range of esteemed venues across the city with her acoustic guitar and powerful vocals - with influences such as Lorde, Fleetwood Mac, and Kelly Clarkson.

ISLA on the story behind the song, “I wrote Break The Fall as an outlet to express all the mixed emotions I was experiencing whilst in a long-distance relationship. There were times where I felt nearly hopeless and songwriting was a way for me to deal with the pain of missing someone I truly care about- you really have to learn to trust each other. The simple act of being in love is worth it all.”

She adds, “I think the lyrics will resonate with the millions across the world who are currently unable to be close to their loved ones, and will hit even closer to home because of the COVID-19 pandemic in which we all were separated from people we care about.”

“Like a river surrendering to its waterfall, the dreamy sustained chords that kick off the debut single from this exciting new artist give way to one of the catchiest choruses I've heard in years. Isla weaves a poignant lyric over a melody that never tries to outdo itself. In Isla's world a slow burn is the key to delivering a powerful message of love lost” - Matt Roux
