London’s Izzy Bizu specializes in addictive, jaunty pop with strong R&B and jazz undercurrents. Last September, she released her buoyant debut album A Moment of Madness, and took home a BBC Music Introducing Award two months later. She’s currently on the road with Coldplay for the Head Full of Dreams tour, bringing standout tracks “White Tiger,” “Talking To You,” and her taut collaboration with HONNE, “Someone That Loves You,” to stadium crowds. Late last month, Bizu not only stopped by Paste’s office to play a few tracks which you can check out below, but also played a jam-packed show at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right. Paste photographer Drew Reynolds documented Bizu’s day in the gallery above, rife with banana shirts, acoustic jams and bridge strolls.
