Isabel, your new song ‘eyes don’t lie’ has a captivating title. From what I can tell, it describes the thoughts behind having an unspoken connection with someone and how exciting the unknown can be. I am wondering if you could you share with us the inspiration behind the song and what it represents to you?

“eyes don’t lie” was inspired by a situation in my own life that felt like an unspoken connection just through making eye contact. The sonics of the song represent something very personal to me, the dark, dance sound helped launch who I am as an artist and feels very true to me.

In ‘eyes don’t lie,’ the lyrics seem to carry a powerful message. Can you walk us through the creative process of writing the song and how you shaped its narrative?

The lyrics describe the feeling of thinking you know someone better than you do because of the way you both look at each other and the things revealed through eye contact. It talks about the fantasies that go through your head when you think about them.

Many fans have already connected deeply with ‘eyes don’t lie.’ Is there a particular line or verse in the song that holds special significance for you, and if so, what is the story behind it?

The line, “You’re beautiful don’t have to try, darlin’ you look divine,” is very special to me because it captures the beauty someone can have without even knowing it. It feels like falling in love with someone and when you look at them, every detail of their face is just perfect.

I know that you write a lot of music with your brother, Thomas. Can you tell me a little bit about your writing process with him? While obviously I imagine you will always continue writing with your brother, is there any dream collaboration you’d love to explore in the future?

Thomas is truly the best writing partner I could ever have asked for, regardless of him being by brother. Even though that’s a bonus. We kind of take on different parts of the writing, he likes melody writing more and I like lyric writing more, so it evens out. We’re constantly running inspiration tracks by each other and writing bits and pieces to bring together into hooks. Honestly, a dream collaboration for me would be with Melanie Martinez or The Weeknd.

Your performances are known for their energy and authenticity. I was actually able to see you live when you opened for Nessa Barrett and can speak firsthand how amazing you were. How do you prepare yourself mentally before stepping on stage? Do you have any unique pre-show rituals?

I get so incredibly nervous before I go on stage. My brother and I always listen to “No Role Modelz” by J. Cole prior. It’s a ritual now we have to nervously sit in our dressing room and listen to that one song. We tie each other’s platform shoes super tightly and give each other the biggest bear hug and then it’s showtime. I sound kind of crazy backstage because I’ll just be whispering to myself; “This is MY stage, I GOT this,” while I’m pacing back and forth with a motorcycle helmet in hand. It’s great, I love and hate that feeling.

Your music videos often feature powerful visuals. Can you tell us about the symbolism or concepts you incorporate to enhance the storytelling?

Music videos and visuals in general have always been incredibly important to me, and that’s why I’ve feel and felt so strongly about writing and directing all my videos. Religion, fear and guilt, as dark as that may sound, are all feelings I try to weave throughout my videos. On a lighter note, I also want all my videos to feel euphoric and capture all the feelings of suburban angst.

It is clear that your fans adore your live shows. What is the most memorable fan interaction you’ve experienced during a performance?

Meeting fans I’ve befriended over the internet who have been supporting me since I first started out is the coolest feeling in the world. One time I recognized a fan and ran up to him, and it was so surreal. I love spotting people in the crowds and having to prevent myself from yelling out to them.

As an artist, how do you balance personal growth with maintaining your musical identity? And how has this journey influenced your upcoming projects?

Honestly sometimes it can be a challenge and I’m still figuring it out, but it helps to remind myself that I need new things to write about! I think my musical identity is so intertwined and true to my personal identity, that my personal growth only adds to new creativity. Isabel’s new song eyes don’t lie‘  and her lyric video is available on all streaming platforms. You can catch Isabel at Lollapalooza this year and at her Lollapalooza After Show!
