Singer, guitarist and songwriter Isaac Anderson is a musical force to be reckoned with. He returns in 2022 with a powerful pop offering ‘Mess Me Up’. The new single is an uplifting melodic track infused with elements of soul and rock to give it a powerful edge. Isaac’s soaring vocals deliver thoughtfully fun lyrics across a radiant soundscape. Shedding light on the meaning behind the track, Isaac shares:
“It’s about embracing the beautiful chaos of being young and clueless – stumbling through life with no sense of direction, laughing as the world goes up in flames around you”
“I was inspired by the complete lack of direction myself and a lot of my friends were feeling in our early twenties – ‘cluelessly muddling through life with little notion of how to get where we wanted, but still trying to live every moment as if it were our last with smiles on our faces.” Isaac adds
The track was written and produced by Isaac alone, in his bedroom in Nottingham. The first draft of the song was written in just a few hours but it took three years of tweaking the lyrics and production to get it to where it is now.
