Greta Isaac – Undone

This song is so cool and hits in so many awesome ways. “Undone” by Greta Isaac is a powerful blend of acoustic folk elements, organic percussion, electronic chops, and compelling vocals. Greta Isaac’s voice is innocent and playful in the verses yet incredibly direct, which hits in the chorus as stacks of harmonies cascade. The production is clever and unique, combing folk elements like acoustic guitars and mandolins with pop elements vocal chops and strange samples.

The result is something so wonderfully unique (the closest comparison I can make is that Greta Isaac is like a female Lord Huron), that builds, breaks, and collapses with a deliberate awareness of dynamics. The songwriting is incredibly tight, keeping the verses bouncing with a strong rhythm before escalating into a pre-chorus and chorus that are both remarkably melodic and catchy. “Undone” shows that Greta Isaac has a distinct sound and style that’s capable of capturing fans of folk and pop alike.
