Quickly cementing herself as an artist to watch in 2021, rising newcomer Issey Cross today reveals her standout debut EP, Mirrors Don’t Lie, via Cult Behaviour. Featuring well-received singles Who and Boys Make Promises alongside new offerings Funfair and Jaded, the body of work showcases Issey’s sure-fire star potential as she dazzles with a combination of razor-sharp songwriting and sky-reaching vocals. Connecting with producers Ebeneezer (Ashnikko, Rejjie Snow, Stefflon Don), ADP ( M.I.A) and P2J ( Jessie Reyez, Alicia Keys, Burna Boy) , the 5- track project introduces Issey Cross in rare fashion. Speaking on Mirrors Don’t Lie, Issey states:
Mirrors Don’t Lie is me understanding that it wasn’t only the other person in the relationship who was wrong, it was me too.
Debuting in mid-January, Issey Cross has since gained plaudits from a wide range of tastemakers, with Annie Mac, Jack Saunders, DAZED, Wonderland, CLASH, Notion, The Line Of Best Fit and the great Sir Elton John acclaiming an important new talent. A prodigy who began writing songs in her early teens and performing live shortly thereafter, Issey Cross relocated from rural Kent to London at age 18 to sharpen her craft, creating a style that marries the big room pop sensibility of Lorde with the intricate R&B of Kehlani. Mirrors Don’t Lie is only step 1 in what looks sure to be a big year for Issey Cross. Look out for more from her soon.
