After relocating to Australia late last year UK singer-songwriter Izi Phoenix returns today with a new single, the beautifully melancholy I’ll Be Leaving Soon. The haunting new indie-folk song showcases Izi’s gravelly baritone and a sparse, intimate production, and is available now on all streaming and download platforms.
“The song was written before I left the UK for Australia as a final conversation between the people you’re closest to,” explains Phoenix. “Why I’m leaving, the hopes between us and the tales I’ll bring back. These were the hardest goodbyes and they’re the people I’ll return to.”
I’ll Be Leaving Soon is driven by the chemistry and ethereal voices of Izi Phoenix and Xena Phoenix, and Izi has been acclaimed by indie press and gained widespread new music radio support. A partnership in life as well as music, Izi taught Xena to ride a motorcycle whilst Xena taught Izi about the value of friendship – and after that they continued to learn from and be taught by each other like two rivers flowing into the sea, the music evolving from the first trickle of rain to the great torrents carving through the land.
