We’re not sure Izzy S.O ever takes a minute to rest. Hot on the heels of her brilliant EP, Silly Me, at the end of last year we have yet another new single – ‘Refuse’ – which is out on streaming platforms TODAY!
Talking about the single, Izzy explained: ‘I wrote Refuse last January from a future perspective, as if I was trying to guide myself out of the chaos and ahead to a time where I felt stronger and things made more sense.
Releasing it a year later, it’s clear how healing time can be and I have found so much more peace and clarity now. You’re stronger than you think, find that strength within yourself so that you are your baseline, it’s dangerous to be dependent on other people for your happiness.“
‘Refuse’ is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Izzy S.O – mixing a killer guitar driven riff with frequent delicacy, this is the perfect introduction to her work.
Born in the West Midlands, Izzy S.O was raised in a creative household with plenty of space for musical expression. As a huge lover of books, she naturally gravitated towards poetry writing as a creative catharsis. Later this evolved into a natural talent for lyricism and over the pandemic she had the opportunity to develop herself sonically with producer Dustin Dooley.
