Straight from the first play this track just grabbed me. I’m in love with pretty much everything about it. Izzy Bizu might be a name that is new to many of you but I think it’s time to get acquainted as it’s a name you’re going to be hearing a lot more in the future.
Hailing from South West London and growing up on a musical diet of Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse and Marvin Gaye Bizu first crossed a lot of radars when she won the ILUVLIVE Open Mic competition aged just 18. Her performance there also impressed Emeli Sande and Naughty Boy who were in the audience. Her debut EP Coolbeanz caught the attention of Zane Lowe and Gemma Cairney amongst others and she recently supported Sam Smith on tour, a man who just happens to be arguably the biggest British performing artist out right now.
Adam & Eve is Bizu’s first official single and its 3 minutes and 20 seconds of pure summery awesomeness. It’s so smooth it’s unreal; the production is fantastic, with loads of sweeping strings and skipping drumbeats. The vocal is light and airy, floating effortlessly over the top of the instrumental. The track has already been play listed by 1Xtra and I’m really not surprised. I’m all over the retro video as well, it fits the song perfectly.
Basically Adam & Eve is a great little tune from a talented young lady who in my view is perfectly placed to go on to seriously big things. I just love this track, it’s as simple as that.
Adam & Eve is officially released June 21st
