singer-songwriter Izzy Mahoubi is excited to share her take on Billie Eilish’s “bury a friend.” Fans can listen to the new cover, out now via Rude Records, here: https://music.ruderecords.com/buryafriendizzy.
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 bluesy 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. Izzy Mahoubi is a singer/songwriter who has something unique to share with the world.
