Rising pop newcomer Izzi De-Rosa has shared her attitude driven new single ‘welcome to my life’ today, stream here.
Finding its conception in the pages of her diary, the pop-punk tinged ‘welcome to my life’ is the most intimate the North London singer has been with her listeners to date, as she confronts the inner workings of her mind trying to figure life out.
She says “part of being human is that we daydream about and indulge in the things that we know are bad for us, whilst constantly striving to be the best versions of ourselves. And the cycle goes on. I wanted to mirror this cycle in the structure of the song – the intense and overbearing bassline in the verses, coupled with the embellished storyline of smashing things, crashing cars and ‘going backwards again’ in my quest to show up as a better version of me. The verses are written to sound and feel like a reflection of how dramatic our emotions can be at times, whilst the chorus portrays the raw and vulnerable part of ourselves that we all try to hide from.”
Back in October Izzi wrapped up some stellar sets in the UK live circuit, including shows at Amazing Grace and British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN for London Fashion Week, alongside a slot at Live At Leeds which Dork called an “amped-up, electrifying set”.
As a youth who idolised the Sugababes, MTV, Smash Hits, and ‘Girlfriend’ era Avril Lavigne, going on to put on club nights and raves throughout her university years, Izzi De-Rosa’s irrepressible take on pop blends the unashamedly big sugary hooks that populated her youth, with splashes of party-starting sass, and a lyrical knack that revels in aspiration and realism.
With over 10 million likes and 400,000 followers on TikTok, Izzi De-Rosa is proving herself as one to watch in the UK pop scene. Her previous Kate Nash meets Sex Pistols-inspired single ‘love u in the morning’ became the #1 trending song on TikTok, and saw immediate support from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, The Independent and Wonderland, with a cover on Spotify’s New Pop UK and spins on Radio 1’s Future Pop.
