“House of Cards” is the debut solo single from singer and songwriter Isaac Howlett, best known as the voice and driving force behind the British synth-pop band Empathy Test. The group have issued three albums, the most recent of which is “Monsters” (2020).

The single, out via the Terrifying Tiger label, confronts the brutal reality but eventual relief of escaping a toxic relationship. The single is the first taste of Howlett’s solo material.

Howlett will be performing “House of Cards” as part of the Empathy Test live set on their forthcoming 10th Anniversary European Tour in March and April 2024.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
