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.
Talk to Trees - Cajsa Siik
Sweden's Cajsa Siik is (or already has, depending on where you live) releasing her sophomore album DOMINO and the lead single "Talk to Trees" is just awesome.
Check "Talk to Trees" out below:
"Talk to Trees" is dreamy, and yet grounded at the same time, thanks in large part to the combination of Siik's sublime pop vocals, and an earthy guitar riff (that reminds me a lot of a sort of mellow college-rock). This, combined with a bit of piano and percussion all comes together to make one hell of an indie pop song.
I know I already (sort of) pointed it out, but I think it bears mentioning again that Siik has a great voice, and the production of this, and indeed all of her previous releases are produced superbly to serve and emphasize her vocals. If you're looking for a lesser-known (in North America) pop singer, whose music instantly gives your playlists, parties, or roadtrips a cooler edge, look no further than Cajsa Siik.
Be sure to check out her first album Contra as well, if you enjoyed "Talk to Trees", and hopefully DOMINO will be widely available at the end of this week.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
See you again tomorrow (with probably another completely different sounding song, so I can hate myself come Playlist time...)
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.
