    While fate sometimes works in mysterious ways, other times it can be as straightforward as landing right in your lap. That’s exactly what happened to Isabelle Burnet, a Brooklyn-based musician and one half of the indie pop duo Retail Space. After many an afternoon spent mulling over the idea of ditching her job to fully pursue Retail Space, a sign was passed down by the powers that be — one that would not only reaffirm her dedication to the band, but also result in a brand new song.

    “One day while on break I stumbled upon a Casio CT-310 on the chuck out and after lugging it home, [Retail Space’s] Jacob [Rosse] and I started writing the beginning keyboard riff to ‘Blue Jeans'”, Burnet tells Consequence of Sound. “Taking it as a sign, we wrote ‘Blue Jeans’ about breaking up with your old life and starting a new one.”

    The fateful track is an alluring and fluid listen, not unlike the serendipity that struck Retail Space that day. “I’m drifting, floating, swaying, side-to-side,” a vocally lithe Burnet can be heard singing, sounding ready and able to welcome whatever fresh opportunities come her way. Hear it in full below.
