The Izzys

BandRockCountry

If you like Stonesy garage rawk with splashes of heartland twang, you're gonna love the Izzys' eponymous debut album. . . it's a sweet ride. Short, catchy songs with loose, raunchy guitar playing and shrug-and-wink lyrics will grab you by both ears.

Biography

Just back from a successful jaunt in London, the boys are playing a July residency at New York's Lakeside Lounge to flush out some new tunes they'll record with Eli Janney (Jet, Ryan Adams, Secret Machines) The new material will be released as a single in the fall with The Orchard, an international online distributor.

A brilliant and mercurial thread winds through the landscape of the American songbook
like a Cadillac on a lost highway. Chameleon-like, sometimes it's
the high-lonesome yelp of Bill Monroe or the haunting misgivings of Robert Johnson.
Other times it is the reverb-drenched bravado of a Sun rockabilly record. And sometimes
it's the can't-stop-dancing boogie of any number of dance tunes by Rufus Thomas,
The Mighty Hannibal, or Prince. This thread is timeless; it is the quintessence
of The American Song.

The Izzys, a fully realized rock and roll outfit—cast in twang, thunder, and boogie—is
driving this thread forward.

"I'd rather have capable Izzy-ness than inescapable dizziness"--Groucho Marx
