Izzy Mahoubi announces debut EP and shares new single/video ‘Cool Guy’

Indie singer-songwriter Izzy Mahoubi has announced her brand new EP How To Run – set to be released on July 21 via European label Rude Records. The EP will feature previous singles ‘Hang Around,’ ‘Torn In Two,’ as well as newly released single ‘Cool Guy.’

Speaking on the process of writing ‘Cool Guy’ Izzy explains, “Writing ‘Cool Guy’ was one of the most effortless, cathartic, and fun experiences I’ve ever had songwriting. After a four month whirlwind of being swept into the indie music scene in Phoenix, I stood back and realized what looked so glamorous and exciting was all a facade. “The high life seemed so pretty”- Once the lights are off, and the music’s over, you begin to realize all of the tough guys and cool groupies are simply just people. I don’t think I could have told this story more authentically than how I did because I simply wrote what happened. I think anyone who listens to Cool Guy can relate to the feeling of romanticizing someone or some lifestyle that promises the world even though the red flags are there from the start. Some of the lyrics in this song make fun of the indie/underground concept, more so, I’m making fun of myself for taking that whole idea so seriously. Cool is dead. Do what you want.”
