Song Of The Day! Izzy Heltai ‘The Stranger You’ve Become’ : “When you feel like you intimately know someone – until you realize you never did.”

“An honest, kind, genuine person generally believes their interpretation of a world at face value. The majority of us choose to engage in the realities of other people with the best of intentions, not wanting to deceive. We aren’t faced day to day with the reality of how malleable our words and truths can actually be.”

Debut of Izzy Heltai’s full length album ‘Father’ drops October 9th.

Our realities are just collectively agreed-upon terms, rules, and conditions. The fact that I can look at a rubber duck, point to it, and claim that it is a rubber duck is only possible because we have all agreed that that is in fact what the physical object is. When you’re intimately involved with someone, it is often difficult or nearly impossible to identify when this is happening. When you finally get out, it can be earth-shattering. The idea that you’ve been with a stranger, that you’ve been tricked. It’s a type of trust that can be extremely difficult to re-cultivate.

Izzy’s thoughtful construction of words to phrases, and down to the sentence revelry – conjoin with that sparkle of reality and realization. With a full impact of knowing that life isn’t a box of deliciousness, all the time, an enveloping and consuming habit for reflection reveals itself, again and again, through his music.

‘The Stranger you’ve Become’ is a solitary, but by no means, a singular example of this vastness in songwriting. Izzy’s palpable attention to detail in emotive note taking, is evident in the seams, and within the bolstering of his works, an outpouring of gratitude, misgivings, desertions, and ambitions, flow like the small creeks to an ultimate river delta.

A force that is grand and unstoppable, in its beauty.
