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.
Crash - Trella
Nashville-based indie pop artist Trella released her debut EP Vapor earlier this year, and quite frankly, it was one of those EP's where I could have easily picked any song off of it for the Daily Song Drop today, but I've decided to go with "Crash" because it was the first track by Trella I had heard (and it's pretty damn wonderful).
Check "Crash" out below:
"Crash" is an incredibly clever indie pop song that plays fast and loose with tempo, but is maintained by an energy that bubbles just under the surface. I particularly like how Trella shifts the pace of her vocals through the track, and how it gives "Crash" a very natural swell to it, letting it layer sound upon sound into a swirling, transcendent pop track.
And long time readers know, I'm always a sucker for a good use of piano.
As I mentioned above, if you enjoy "Crash" you are going to find a lot to like on Vapor; while there are few songs that have the same feel as this one, there are some lovely tracks, including another favorurite of mine, "Stand Up", or check out her most recent single, the summery, indie-folk tinged "Summer Cheeks"
The August 2017 DSD Playlist is here! This month we are only missing one (1) track, from AL-X the Great, as it is not available...anywhere other than where I put it in here, but it is tradition that we are missing something every month. Also, here is the link to the August '17 Spotify List because....we are on Spotify!
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
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
