Drawing equally on music of decades past and modern songwriting sensibilities, the music of Dead Mass places at the forefront searing guitars and lyrical commentary, evocative synth, deep driving bass, and thunderous beats.
Indie artist ISLA is a singer, songwriter and cat enthusiast from New Zealand. She found her feet as a performer when she attended an open mic in a seacave, and was inspired by the overwhelming warmth and talent that Tamaki Makaurau has to offer. She formed a band of cave people and brought her ideas to life for debut EP "Weirdo" in 2019.
ISLA continues to use songwriting as a time capsule for life's experiences. Her sound sits somewhere under the umbrella term "indie", walking a tightrope between folk, pop and rock. Her songs feature complex vocal harmonies and varied instrumentation. Her love of words, impressive vocal range and self deprecating nature to create music that reminds you you're not the only awkward human on this planet.
