C’mon let’s go
C’mon let’s go
No time to waste
Polish post-punk rockers Izzy and The Black Trees premiere their third single from their brand new album, Revolution Comes in Waves (via Antena Krzyku).
Izzy and the Black Trees bring raw punk energy with their noisy psych guitar riffs, strong beat, and feisty melodies: we hear the likes of Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, and PJ Harvey channeled through the lyrics and delivery of this passionate political anthem.
“Kick Out the Damned is a simple message for those who long overstayed their unwanted welcome, for those who unrightfully claim what’s theirs, particularly authoritarian leaders whose golden statues will tumble and fall eventually,” says Izabela “Izzy” Rekowska. It calls for a shift change in society; an uprising of the suppressed, oppressed, and depressed.
Mariusz Dojs animated the gorgeously-nightmarish Tim Burton-esque stop-motion video, whereupon we witness the toppling of historic statues in a frenetic run-for-your-life chase. Izzy and The Black Trees blast through the spiritual veil with an infectious, fuzz-ridden punk soundtrack.

Izabela Izzy Rekowska founded Izzy and the Black Trees in 2018 in Poland, after spending some time in London developing her songwriting skills. The band released “Picasso’s Octopuss”, a bold, psych-fuzz-laden track from the debut album Trust No One, released by the legendary Polish indie label Antena Krzyku in April 2020. The title song of the album was featured by Steve Lamacq on the BBC 6 Music Recommends radio show.
