The 19-year old Londoner recently released a 6-track EP out entitled “Coolbeanz”, but it was the remix by Star Slinger that served as my introduction to her work.
I always check out anything Star Slinger does, so when he posted a new track on his Soundcloud. I was super stoked to check it out.
The first thing that stuck out for me was the voice.
She’s got a super catchy delivery with an authentic undercurrent of innocence. It kind of reminded a bit of Aluna Francis of Alunageorge. I liked it. I needed to investigate further.
You can stream her entire EP on Soundcloud and I highly recommend you do that. “Butterfly”, “White Tiger”, “Fool’s Gold” and “High Road” are my faves.
And lest you think there’s some subtle studio trickery involved in her sound, here’s Izzy Bizu performing “White Tiger” live.
I’m looking forward to big, BIG, BIIIIIGGG things from Izzy Bizu in 2014.
