“Televised” makes the return of rising recording artist Izzy Strange. Plays on the outlook of society’s social media dependency and the instant gratification age we are currently living in. With the way things move so rapidly across the internet these days, we’re seeing more controversial material and people becoming viral sensations overnight.
With that comes the flood of individuals willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their fifteen minutes of social media fame. Slowly but surely, we’re starting to see people detach from real life and submerse themselves into a reality world circa the Bruce Willis’ “Surrogates” realm. Izzy attacks these points and much more on “Televised”.
Casa Nada provides the soundscape with Tahlyn sharing chorus duty with Strange as he chants “televised, televised, mom I think we made it / 80 likes on Facebook, I think we’re fucking famous”. The video takes the song concept even further. We find Izzy playing a live set to an empty venue while everyone tunes in via a Facebook Live stream of the show. The video focuses on a few of these stream viewers lives. Ultimately summing up the downside of social media platforms and the disconnection from actual real life interactions. The Rock and Hip Hop hybrid is yet another introspective based singles from the Pennsylvania emcee as he continues to tour and work on his next album, “The Die Is Cast”. Thus far, “Televised” has amassed over 22k views on Izzy’s Facebook page and continues to garner views.

This won’t be the last we hear from the official 2018 A3C artist this year either. He plans to release two new singles, one featuring 2009 XXL Freshman Blu and the second featuring Mick Jenkins of “The Healing Component” fame. This will mark the second collaborative effort Strange has had with the emcees, the first outings were featured on his sophomore album, “A Good Day 2 B The Bad Guy”.
While awaiting the upcoming releases, enjoy the official video for “Televised” here.
