Isobel Campbell - "Ant Life"

If it feels like it's been a while since we've heard from Isobel Campbell, it's because it has been. Her last album was 2010's Hawk with Mark Lanegan. Since then she moved to Los Angeles from Glasgow and got married. She started working on her new album, but then her label went under which led to years of legal hassle to get the rights to her album back.

Luckily, that's all been settled so we can finally hear the long awaited album. "Ant Life" is pretty much what we'd expect from the former founder of Belle & Sebastian. It's not really twee, but it's a dreamy indie pop song. It's folk-pop with synths, creating an almost magical, dreamlike sound.

You can watch the video for "Ant Life" below. There is No Other, the new album from Isobel Campbell, will be out January 31 on Cooking Vinyl. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Isobel Campbell, check out her website.
