Izzy Mahoubi Signs To Rude Records

Speaking on the new release Izzy shares, “The overall vibe and story behind Hang Around is an indie pop/singer songwriter single about reminiscing old memories while looking towards the future. It’s upbeat, yet personable sound has descriptive lyrics and friendly melodies accompanied by an acoustic guitar reflecting a similar sound to Solar Power by Lorde. More than just “dreaming of the summer,” Hang Around is a song that dares to reimagine what your life could be like and what you are able to achieve. My hopes are that this song can make whoever is listening feel uplifted and excited about their lives and that the chorus will be stuck in their heads after listening to it one time lol.”
