Isaac Dunbar is a pop genius.
That’s the kind of bold headline statement that’s worth making when it comes to an artist with such a deft touch. For a couple of years now, Dunbar has been dropping relatively undiscovered gems – but his latest collection ‘Evil Twin’ feels like a significant step up.
More abrasive and forthright, at times – like on the brilliant ‘pink party’ – it’s almost gloriously unhinged. Elsewhere, ‘intimate moments’ soars on clouds of dry ice, while ‘kissy kissy’ is a bright, primary colours bop of the highest order. There’s no one string to Isaac’s bow – more the underlying ability to pick and choose from several pots to mix an aesthetic hue all of his own.
You can’t teach that talent.
