Video Clip of The Week: Izzy True, “Mr. Romance”



First things first: Izzy True is the name of a Band, not an individual. That said, the punky-folk quartet’s guitarist/vocalist is named Isabel (Reidy), so no doubt that was an influence on the band’s moniker. And why not? Her voice is compelling in the same way that Robert Pollard’s lo-fi vocal stylings make every Guided By Voices fan swoon the moment he opens his mouth. Thematically, the video for “Mr. Romance” explores nonchalant germophobia and sexual fluidity in a humorously engaging manner, and there are so many visual distractions that you can watch this thing 10 times and notice or focus on new stuff with each successive viewing. I like that. And, man, does she ever have nice skin.

“Mr. Romance” is the lead track off Izzy True’s debut LP Nope, released just this past week via Don Giovanni Records. With songs about “magic, loneliness, and learning to like yourself,” press calls Nope “a rock and roll album which makes space for misery.” Don’t tell me you’re not curious to hear it.  Izzy True tour dates are below. Enjoy!
