Blue Planet Eyes not only lives up to its bold aspirations, it blows them away. As addictive as it is ambitious, it takes the promise of ‘Is This How You Feel?’ and projects it widescreen, popping with delicious grooves, hip-hugging bass lines and choruses that just won’t quit.
From the sultry swagger of ‘Whatever You Want’ to the juicy licks of ‘Ordinary’, through the hedonism of ‘Rock And Roll Rave’… it’s an exhilarating combination of Rock & Roll and Soul, at the centre of which beats a heart of brash, joyous pop.
“I really wanted to explore pop writing,” explains Izzi. “That’s the overarching theme [on the album]. I never thought I would be writing pop music, I don’t think any of us did. But the more I got into it, the more I love it – how I could make people feel the most in the least amount of time.”
