In her impressive coming-of-age debut EP, “junior,” 17-year-old NYC singer-songwriter Izzy Pringey presents a collection of diaristic and confessional lyrics, embodying energetic vulnerability through an easily accessible and contagious musical journey.
The EP kicks off with “sick of it,” where infectious guitar riffs set the tone for a vehement expression of emotions. Izzy’s rich and passionate vocals resonate with feelings of betrayal, anger, and hurt. The lyrics recount her experiences, especially how much she did for someone and how she’s “past all the breaking down” and thankful it’s over now.
As the EP unfolds and ends, “flatline” takes center stage with melodic guitar riffs and hard-hitting drums. The track reminds us what it felt like to hopelessly fall in love for the first time. Izzy’s ability to capture the raw essence of such moments shines through, making the listener feel the ups and downs of the emotional rollercoaster.
Standout lines, such as “People ask me what I need, and I say you every time,” reveal Pringey’s desperate desire through simplistic lyrics and get us swooning in the process. We feel the rush just like her and want to be loved. This is the power of the youth’s transparency and sincerity in her songwriting to create a genuine connection with the audience.
Izzy Pringey’s “junior” is a remarkable debut. It showcases her talent as a singer-songwriter. And we can tell she is promising us a lot with her talent and originality. Listen to the young artist navigate love, heartbreak, and self-discovery and be empowered as she ups her game in “junior” available on Spotify!
