Speaking on the new cover Izzy shares, “When I first heard ‘Bury a Friend’ by Billie Eilish in 2019, I was instantly amazed and energized by the lyrics and eerie production from this song. Breaking out of the expectation that Billie would release another bedroom pop single, she bore a song that shocked everyone and that inspired me. I quickly reimagined the synth-pop song into a blues-y acoustic rendition that I would play all over Arizona which led to many people turning their heads and asking if it was an original. Recording it with a full band did this song justice as it turned into an alt rock anthem that my friends and I scream in the car. This song has been a consistent influence to me as an artist as it encourages me to push the limits of the songs I write and how I sing them.”
Last month, Izzy announced her signing to Rude Records and shared her latest single “Hang Around,” a track about reminiscing about old memories all while looking towards the future. Fans can listen to “Hang Around” now at https://music.ruderecords.com/hangaround.
