Particularly at the start of “Luna,” it’s fair to conclude that the percussion drives the song. The vocals and synth play important roles, but removal of the percussion would have the largest negative impact on the enjoyment of “Luna.” Yes, as the song progresses, the “measure of negative impact” is reduced. During a middle segment (1:44 until 2:31), traditional percussion is often absent. Still, if you’re a fan of fast paced, mix-emphasized percussion, this song from ISLE is recommended.
ISLE is a duo comprising producer Liam John Rutherford and drummer Ben Singer. The Facebook page of ISLE identifies Scottish Borders as their hometown and Glasgow as their current location.
