Discovery: Izaak Opatz

Bathing in the Ganges was released recently by singer-songwriter Izaak Opatz, leaving us in eager anticipation of his new album Mariachi Static, to be released on July 20th.

There’s an earnestness to Opatz’ music that is utterly enthralling, drawing you in note by note. Bathing in the Ganges is a slow track, and some listeners may not get it at first, but keep with it and you’ll find that there is a lot more going on that appears at first listen. Opatz wears his heart on his sleeve, and if this is anything to go by, then the album should be something very special indeed.
