Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Island - Violet Skies
Welsh Singer/Songwriter Violet Skies has a beautiful voice, which you will really get a sense of with her indie pop track "Island". This is a spotlessly produced song that utilizes elements of indie pop, and a little bit of electronic to create the perfect backdrop for the vocals.
I love that more and more indie pop artists are people with voices. That's something that no amount of production can cover; Violet Skies' soulful vocals have an emotional resonance that would carry "Island" on their own, but are only improved by the soundscape behind them.
This is just good pop music. Period.
I'm very hopeful that we may get an EP this year, as I totally want to hear more as Violet Skies continues to develop her sound.
You should also give the Dec 16/Jan 17 Playlist a listen! The February Playlist will be available this coming Friday, with (hopefully) all of the DSD tracks!
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
