about

Moon is the slinky, downtempo, debut single from Izy (pronounced eye-zee), a trio who emerged from the rainforests of Far North Queensland this year to make Melbourne their new home.

“Moon was her name, moon was her name” goes the hook, introducing the honeyed voice of bassist Warrigo Tyrrell. On guitar and drums Ryo Montgomery and Maru Nitor-Zammataro complete the trio. Perfectly synchronised, perfectly minimal, this understated piece of jazzy soul brings to mind D’angelo and Bilal at their most stripped back.

Brothers from different mothers, all three members of Izy write and sing, but it is the baby brother of the group, Warrigo, who gets to shine on this first single. In his words: “I was in my room looking out my window at the moon when I wrote this song and in my mind the moon became the face of a loved one. She is beautiful and shining, radiating her elegance, just like the moon. She loves the moon, she draws the moon, she is the moon. So - Moon was her name. It came out like that.”

lyrics

The earth lies in front of me
Sun goes down for night to recover
Your face that hides behind that moon
Peaks through each and everything
You stood in the highest peak
If you go, I will not heal
Stay right here
Don’t go away
Keep your warmth at hand

Moon was her name moon was her name
Drew me a sketch in the night sky
Out burst the light of herself, herself
Guide me to you

Moon was her name, moon was her name
Lost in a the ocean of clouds
Our burst the light of herself, herself
Guide me to you

you float there so quietly
With no one around, there’s only peace
Without you there’s no one I can love
Remain where you are
Brightest light there is to see
Oh white moon come sit with me
Tell me all your memories
And I’ll tell you mine

about

Izy Melbourne, Australia

Izy, pronounced eye-zee, is the world’s first Far North Queensland neo-soul supergroup, and their time has come. How did this improbable band come together? Three sensitive boys, seeking shelter from the cyclones and the heat and the homicidal jellyfish found themselves hanging out, swapping shifts in a music shop, jamming in a blues bar, selling ukeleles and distilling clandestine dragonfruit gin ... more
