Out Now // Singer-songwriter Izzy Mahoubi shares cover of Billie Eilish’s “bury a friend” – Out Now via Rude Records

Speaking on the new cover Izzy shares, “When I first heard Bury a Friend by Billie Eilish in 2019, I was instantly amazed and energized by the lyrics and eerie production from this song. Breaking out of the expectation that Billie would release another bedroom pop single, she bore a song that shocked everyone and that inspired me. I quickly reimagined the synth-pop song into a blues-y acoustic rendition that I would play all over Arizona which led to many people turning their heads and asking if it was an original. Recording it with a full band did this song justice as it turned into an alt rock anthem that my friends and I scream in the car. This song has been a consistent influence to me as an artist as it encourages me to push the limits of the songs I write and how I sing them.”

However, the song’s lyrics are about the struggle with addiction. The subject touches many of us either directly or indirectly and we wanted to offer strength to those who are fighting, as well as to those who have already lost a loved one to addiction. We wanted to keep the lyrics of the verses raw and straightforward, depicting internal battles in one’s own head just when the will is about to break. The purpose of the chorus is to light a small spark of hope for those who struggle in their everyday life: ‘Won’t bend this time, cause now I’m taking back what’s mine!'”
