Exploring Emotional Landscapes: Izzy S.O Unveils ‘I Swear I Made You Up'”

‘I Swear I Made You Up’ is a poignant track that delves into the complexities of relationships, reflecting on the transformation from love to estrangement. Inspired by a real-life encounter with a past lover, Izzy S.O’s raw and introspective lyrics capture the awkwardness of meeting someone who was once so close, now reduced to mere strangers. The song serves as a cathartic reminder of the changes that life can bring and the walls we build to protect ourselves.

In a message accompanying the release, Izzy encourages listeners to prioritize their own journey and self-worth, despite the behaviors of others. She emphasizes the importance of remaining true to oneself and not letting external influences distort one’s view.

‘I Swear I Made You Up’ follows Izzy S.O’s earlier single ‘Refuse’, which garnered attention for its angsty vibe and shimmering guitar work. Drawing comparisons to 90s production infused with Gen Z bedroom pop, Izzy’s distinctive sound has been praised by critics, with Clash Magazine hailing her as “an absolute powerhouse”.

Hailing from the West Midlands and raised in a creatively nurturing environment, Izzy S.O’s journey into music was a natural progression from her love for poetry. Collaborating with producer Dustin Dooley during the pandemic, Izzy honed her sonic identity, culminating in the release of her sophomore EP ‘Silly Me’ last year. The EP, described as a “sonic rampage through adolescence” by Ones To Watch, showcased Izzy’s talent for storytelling and garnered widespread acclaim.

Building on her success, Izzy S.O has solidified her place as an emerging artist to watch, blending elements of pop-rock and indie with a touch of grunge influence. With support from renowned publications and radio stations, including Clash, Ones To Watch, and BBC Introducing, Izzy’s authentic expression and gift for storytelling continue to resonate with audiences worldwide.

Drawing inspiration from iconic female artists such as Alanis Morisette, Mazzy Star, and Avril Lavigne, Izzy S.O’s music aims to connect with listeners on a personal level, offering solace and companionship through her heartfelt lyrics. As she continues to evolve as an artist, Izzy hopes that her music will have the same impact on others as the songs that inspired her own journey.
