Today marks the release of Izzy S.O’s latest single, ‘Refuse,’ a blend of tender vocals and shimmering guitars that catapults listeners into the complexities of heartache—all wrapped in a nostalgic 90s-inspired sonic cocoon.

Drenched in angsty nostalgia, ‘Refuse’ serves as a poignant exploration of heartache and the transformative journey that follows. Izzy S.O’s ethereal vocals soar over a backdrop of guitar-laden magic, creating an anthemic atmosphere that harks back to the 90s. The song, written last January from a future perspective, serves as a guide through chaos, ultimately finding strength and clarity. Izzy’s introspective lyrics and emotive delivery make ‘Refuse’ a powerful follow-up to her sophomore EP, Silly Me, released in November last year.

“I wrote ‘Refuse’ last January from a future perspective as if I was trying to guide myself out of the chaos and ahead to a time where I felt stronger and things made more sense. Releasing it a year later, it’s clear how healing time can be and I have found so much more peace and clarity now. You’re stronger than you think, find that strength within yourself so that you are your baseline, it’s dangerous to be dependent on other people for your happiness.”

As Izzy S.O continues to carve her path in the music scene, ‘Refuse’ stands as a testament to her evolving sound, skillfully navigating the realms of pop-rock and indie with a subtle nod to grunge.
