Enigmatic online artist IZII has shared his new single ‘Birds’ (featuring vocals by Powder Room), and there’s a stunning new video to accompany the track that’s been released on MrSuicideSheep’s label Seeking Blue.
IZII’s new single is an “intriguing yet seamless fusion of acoustics and dreamy synthesized basslines” that will appeal to fans of electronic music. ‘Birds’ originated after IZII heard the vocals of Natalia Kills (under the name Powder Room) and fell in love with the sample of the song. He’s not the first to be wooed by the voice of Natalia Kills -at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, she received a Grammy for Best R&B Song nomination for co-writing Rihanna’s song ‘Kiss It Better’.
The video is a tempestuous but beautiful visual aid to the track, and it shows the highs and lows of love, friendship, and the emotional seesaw that is adolescence. The skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles loom over the two young girls in the video, representing the unforgiving world they think they have control over. Hearts and heads collide, and the recklessness of youth plays out alongside Natalia Kills strong vocals.
