As humans we often face moments where we feel like an outsider or like we never fit in with the right crowd.
Izzie Derry puts those feelings into song with her latest single “Try”. The track was set to release on June 23, 2023. The single starts quite simple with Derry’s vocals and a simple trill before a guitar comes in. Right from the beginning you can tell this track is meant to be one that is relatable and reaches those who have trouble speaking for themselves with lyrics like “When I was young they put me in a box, told me that life comes at a cost, and lines should not be crossed”. I am sure many listeners can relate to feeling out of place or even being told that they should not be different from other people and stand out. Derry does a great job empathizing with the audience and being able to emulate that feeling of understanding in “Try”. Overall the song is one that I think everyone should give a listen to, especially fans of artists like Fiona Apple, Lizzie McAlpine and Alanis Morisette.
The all-rounder artist currently hails from Brighton, England and has been a force in the UK music scene since she was 15. The latest track from Derry will be the 4th single released from the singer-songwriter in 2023 alone. Derry is able to bring a youthful exuberance to the folk-indie sound and relatability to listeners everywhere.
