Zella Day releases a fair amount of music, and I can barely keep up with it! But honestly, I'm hopeful for the future of this singer-songwriter from Pinetop, Arizona. I posted last year about how much I enjoyed "Golden" - and what a giddy, fun, disco-infused pop song it was! - and this year she's kept things going as she builds up to her new album, "Sunday in Heaven" (out October 14th). Her latest track, "Mushroom Punch," is another solid testament to her talent. She's pretty amazing at a variety of styles; it's rare to hear a mainstream-ish singer-songwriter who embraces such an eclectic approach. And as you can probably deduce by the title, "Mushroom Punch" has a decidedly psychedelic pop vibe to it.
Earlier this summer, Zella released "Radio Silence," an angstier rock song that found her screaming in a way that reminded me of The Cranberries' late Dolores O'Riordan.
TL;DR I am PUMPED for "Sunday in Heaven," and I'd invite you to give Zella a shot if you haven't yet! I'm genuinely excited to see where the rest of her career takes her. And because I love this song so much, here's "Golden" one more time:
