Izzy S.O Shares ‘Can You Hear Me’ Music Video

British indie pop-rock artist Izzy S.O has just shared the intensely fervent and heartfelt music video for her song Can You Hear Me, the title track of her debut EP which is out now through Silent Kid Records.
I am really enjoying Izzy S.O's vocals which are quite powerful and packed with raw emotion that soar effortlessly over the energetic indie-pop/rock production that features soaring guitar riffs, punchy drums and a chorus perfect to sing along to.

Shot by director Vittoria Rizzardi Penalosa and featuring Alexander Arnold of the Skins TV series, the video conceptually mirrors a defiant ode to choosing oneself amid a faulty relationship with widening cracks in the seams. Izzy and Arnold play either part of an enamored yet defunct young couple and whether they find themselves laying together yet disgruntled in a picturesque meadow, throwing plates at each other that were laid out on an outdoor banquet from a dream or shakily aiming handguns at one another as if deciding whether to kill the relationship dead, the duo depicts the madness that comes from desperately clinging onto a person that should be let go. Check it out below!



Speaking about the video, Izzy S.O said,
The idea for the video started as stick men on a little piece of paper as I was eating Dahl in a restaurant in Stoke Newington - my initial idea for the video was very simple and was a sort of snapshot of the relationship that the song is about.
It’s an amplified version of a mad relationship I was in. Vittoria came up with the final concept - she brought in a surreal element to the story which gave me the freedom to see it more like an acting role. It was really important that the person playing opposite me was right; I didn’t want the relationship to just feel toxic - It had to show the fun side and make it clear that there was love beneath it all. When Alex agreed to do it I relaxed and felt like it was definitely going to be done right.
