The soft and enchanting vocals of folk artist Electra Day swept into my world like a delicate spring breeze. From the first few strums of her guitar work on her new single Big Sky, I couldn’t help but drift into the melodies of the song. It reminded me of the kinds of songs my mom used to sing me to sleep with. I couldn’t help but smile and relax as I took the song in.

The beautiful part of folk music is that when it is done right it is timeless. You can hear hints of Joni throughout the words but only as a tribute to the genre that she helped mold. Electra Day stands on her own. As she sings you can feel her journey, the depth of her lyrics. A simple yet memorizing story set to an almost childlike innocence. A modern day nursery rhyme. I feel like this song is a piece of a beautiful puzzle that will find a perfect home among the greats.

You can hear the entire album Quiet Hours on her bandcamp page. Make sure you follow the rest of her journey on her website and all of her social networks.

 

 
Extended Plays is an ongoing music series of all the music that I stumble upon. I listen to the music, go with my gut and spill my honest and sometimes brutal opinion all over this blog. I hope you take the time to check out the artists I review for yourselves. I tend to believe that I am always right about everything but the most beautiful thing about music is that my opinion doesn’t matter to anyone but myself.
