Zara Larsson’s Clubby Call, Essential Listening By Ian Isiah, And More Songs We Love

There is a comforting timbre to Ian Isiah‘s sweet falsetto, which chimes over mid-tempo snares and slow-grooving keys on “Loose Truth,” a track off his forthcoming Chromeo-produced EP, Auntie. The truth referred to by the title is the tenacity of Isiah’s community. The song is dedicated to them, and particularly to essential workers; a corresponding music video, released last week, honors both, with visuals of people in and out of scrubs embracing, laughing, dancing, and hanging out on stoops. Community chatter book-ends the lyrics, like a choir to Isiah’s testament: It’s a tender proclamation of the power of family in a pandemic, gospel for a heavy heart. —Coco Romack
