Izabo – Morning Hero

Retro new wave/post-punk Middle Eastern style from Israeli quartet

Trending Now

Based in Tel Aviv, Izabo draw from fascinating influences: Gang Of Four, early Talking Heads, Jane’s Addiction, Television, Pere Ubu and the Arab music of their immediate neighbours. On this five-track mini album (their British debut), Ran Shem-Tov sings (in English) over angular, spidery guitars while keyboard player Shiri Hadar backs him up with her sweet, sunny voice. Behind them, warm runs of white punk-funky bass chase a pulsing, danceable drumbeat. A promising, infectious debut.
