This is what happens when I lose it - in a non-threatening and sensual way. With only a day to rehearse and establish choreography with Tom Heyes, I felt confident knowing it was time to battle myself out of the white box, step back into the zone, and fully embrace my inner ISH.” Written and produced with Sega Bodega, “ISH” has critics and listeners on their heels with acclaim from Essence, Pitchfork, NYLON,, Resident Advisor, BrooklynVegan, and HYPEBEAST.
