London’s Izzy Flynn is an artist on the rise as her blend of electronic, electropop, soul and jazz is mesmerizing. Flynn trained formally in jazz music at Leeds College of Music and she has toured the world accompanied by the Abstract Orchestra, supporting Mos Def, De La Soul and Afrika Bambaataa. Flynn has a new EP, Faith, coming on November 18th and we’ve got the title track to share with you today.
“Faith” builds slowly with a strong sense of movement and direction as spare instrumentation showcases Flynn’s deeply affecting voice. More electronic elements enter the scene, as do additional voices and the chorus is revealed as the full musical accompaniment fills in. Flynn says, “the track involves a lot of layered textures and heavy synth/arpeggiated chords.” It’s beautiful composed and stunningly performed. Fans of FKA Twigs, SOHN, James Blake, and Jessie Ware are sure to find Izzy Flynn completely irresistible.
