Sizzy Rocket is no stranger to the studio. Since signing a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing, the NYU's Clive Davis School of Music drop-out has written with numerous successful writers and producers including Diplo, DJ Khalil, Jim Jonsin, Alex Da Kid, Oak and Tiago. She was also recently featured alongside Run The Jewels on the Flosstradamus track “Don’t Trip” which she also co-wrote.
Today, she announced the release of her first single “Bestie,” available on 5/19. Produced by “Babydaddy” of Scissor Sisters, the track is parody of pop culture and queer cynicism grounded in a parallel emotional reality.
Though sonically upbeat and fun, her music is inspired by trauma, by young love gone wrong, by danger, by a darker side. Most pop stars only sing about the fantasy of taking someone home, of getting wrecked, but Sizzy’s whole thing is about exposure. What happens when you exploit the fantasy? What is underneath? It's something much darker. It becomes visceral and uncomfortable, borderline violent. It's rock n' roll.
