Zella Day Compass

Now residing in Los Angeles, Arizona native Zella Day incorporates her simplistic roots (Apache reservation) and blends them with the eclectic sounds of the West Coast.

Zella Day - incredible, angelic beauty...
Zella Day – incredible, angelic beauty…

We have been listening to Compass:

A downward sloping piano creates a blanket of muffled sadness.

Nestling in this, the vocal sits. Sometimes peaky and soft-topped – it also falls down, broken and low.

This is a skeleton of excitement and incredible, angelic beauty – the song is cheerful and desperate all-at-once.

It is about loss (or feeling lost) and how we can find our way back.

It gets much more Del Rey-ish in the last moments – when the beats pick up and they start to hype.

But otherwise, this has a suitably original shine. And it is almost too incredibly attractive to endure.
