Islet (Izabela Laskowska) is a Polish-born singer, songwriter and lyricist who loves both old-time acoustic, as well as modern electronic sounds.
She works under her artistic name since 2008, mostly in the Tricity area. It is there that she has been widely acclaimed for her live performances, which repeatedly enchant the audience with the air of unique intimacy. The artist still lives and creates in Gdansk.
Islet’s debut album, “Zatrzymaj się” (“Stop”) had been funded by one of the major crowdfunding communities, wspieramkulture.pl, and was released in August 2015. It was accompanied by her first single, “Milczysz” (“You are silent”). Each of the twelve songs on the album reflect pure elegance and tranquility that the artist is so well known for. The general mood of “Zatrzymaj się” is calm and subtle, leaving the listener swayed by the velvet tone of Islet’s voice, singing both in English and Polish.
Currently, Islet is occupied by working on her next album, frequent live performances and raising a daughter.
