About the Album

"Stone" is the third single taken from "Requiem For the Faithful", the highly-anticipated third release from London-based post-jazz/Art Pop quartet ISQ. An electronica infused ballad, it blends modern sounds with a vintage soul where the piano/synth, double bass and drums all intertwine with the vocals to create a slice of perfect nu jazz. After two critically-acclaimed brave and original albums, ISQ released their third album “Requiem For the Faithful” in September 2019. Their recent singles from the new album show a consolidation and maturing of their own inimitable style - the use of space and dynamics along with Serra’s evocative lyrics that weave stories of a rare intensity. Each song creates a visual storyline - a movie-ette in the listeners head, that connect to an audience well beyond just the jazz one. “...ISQ are a melting pot of genres – jazz, pop, acoustic and experimental – which all blend together to an entrancing effect...” - Time Out London Critics Choice
