Israeli broadcaster IBA selected the group Izabo to represent them in the 2012 edition of Europe's Favourite TV Show. The alternative band will perform the Ran Shem-Tov and Shiri Hadar song Time in Baku.

Izabo are best described as a brilliant, action packed combination of Psychadelic Rock, Disco, Punk flavoured with Arabic spices. They secured a spot as one of Israel’s most successful alternative pop bands with the 2003 release of their debut album The Fun Makers.

From there Izabo went on to sign with Sony BMG, and in the same year released “The Morning Hero EP” in the UK and began to take their funky sounds to an international audience. In January of 2005 The Fun Makers was released in the Benelux countries via the label Rough Trade NL, and in 2006 it was released in France via Roymusic/ Discograph. Since 2006, Izabo have been busy touring Europe constantly and showcasing their catchy disco beats at a variety of festivals including Trans Musicales, The Paleo Festival, and Eurosonic.

Their second album Superlight was released in Israel and France in 2008 with Roymusic/ Discograph to rave reviews. In October 2011 Izabo signed with the English Label 100% Records, who signed artists among Gossip, Moby and Placebo. Izabo’s first three Track EP has been released in the United Kingdom this July, with their brand new album due to be released by the end of the year, in the UK, Europe & Israel.

Time time don't let me down You're the man in my play ground What you say i will obey, night and day Feel free to turn me on Feel free to change my song I will count and you will go on Sing my song I say זמן-מן תן לי רק סימן מן ,תן לי את הזמן למה לוחץ עלי – תישן you got to give me more time זמן- מן למה לא תישן- שן תגיד לי כמה זמן למה להיות שחור לבן Time time could you be mine I will feed you songs and wine I 'll make you lazy , I'll make you late Wait wait wait Wait wait we two are one But you always take the lead I lay down and you just run Mind your speed i say זמן-מן תן לי רק סימן מן ,תן לי את הזמן למה לוחץ עלי – תישן זמן- מן למה לא תישן- שן תגיד לי כמה זמן למה להיות שחור לבן זמן-מן תן לי רק סימן מן ,תן לי את הזמן למה לוחץ עלי – תישן זמן- מן למה לא תישן- שן תגיד לי כמה זמן למה להיות שחור לבן Time time don't let me down
Time time don't let me down You're the man in my play ground What you say i will obey - night and day Feel free to turn me on Feel free to change my song I will cound and you will go on Sing my song I say Time time give me just a sign sign, Give me just the time Why are you pressuring me? Go to Sleep You got to give me more time Time time why wont you just sleep - tell me how much time why do you have to always be either black or white Time time could you be mine I will feed you songs and wine I'll make you lazy, i'll make you late Wait wait wait Wait wait we two are one But you always take the lead I lay down and you just run Mind your speed I say Time time give me just a sign sign, Give me just the time Why are you pressuring me? Go to Sleep You got to give me more time Time time why wont you just sleep tell me how much time why do you have to always be either black or white Time time don't let me down
Temps, temps, ne me laisse pas tomber Tu es l’homme sur mon terrain de jeu J’obéirais à ce que tu dis, jour et nuit N’hésite pas à m’exciter N’hésite pas à changer ma chanson Je compterais et tu continueras Chante ma chanson je te dis Le temps – en, fais-moi juste un si – igne, donne-moi le temps Pourquoi me faire pression – dors Il faut me donner plus de temps Temps – en, pourquoi tu ne do-ors pas ? Dis-moi combien de temps Pourquoi être noir et blanc ? Temps Temps peux-tu être à moi Je te nourrirais de chansons et de vin Je te rendrais paresseux, je te mettrais en retard Attends, attends, attends Attends, attends, nous 2 sommes 1 Mais tu diriges toujours Je m’allonge et toi tu cours Contrôle ta vitesse, je te dis Le temps – en, fais-moi juste un si – igne, donne-moi le temps Pourquoi me faire pression – dors Il faut me donner plus de temps Temps – en, pourquoi tu ne do-ors pas ? Dis-moi combien de temps Pourquoi être noir et blanc ? Le temps – en, fais-moi juste un si – igne, donne-moi le temps Pourquoi me faire pression – dors Il faut me donner plus de temps Temps – en, pourquoi tu ne do-ors pas ? Dis-moi combien de temps Pourquoi être noir et blanc ?
