Walking On The Sky2016
“Walking On The Sky” is the fresh new Summertime single from effervescent pop duo ISSIMO. Unique songwriting team Marc Otway and Abi Uttley, backed by a group of six ‘ISSIMITES’, have already been gaining attention around the UK with shows at Latitude Festival, Cornbury Festival, and Beat Herder. The pair formed in 2013 after meeting at an open mic in a pub in Yorkshire. They worked as separate solo artists for some time before joining forces to start producing the fun-loving sounds of ISSIMO. Genre Defying, ISSIMO, take influences from many of the duos favourite styles, and they blend infusions of Latin, Reggae, Ska, Funk and Disco into lyrically driven pop songs. When asked to explain the bands name singer/guitarist/songwriter Marc says ‘ISSIMO is used in Spanish and Italian to add emphasis to words, so it’s kind of like an exclamation mark. Which fits perfectly with what we do.’ “Walking on The Sky” is the summer anthem of 2016 available to pre-order on iTunes from July.
