We’ve been talking about LA based singer/songwriter Zella Day for sometime now and the moment has finally come for her music to be praised by the masses. Day’s self-titled debut EP was released this week via B3SCI Records – leading with Zella’s dazzling new single Hypnotic.
If you’ve been listening to Zella Day’s music then you’ll already agree with the talent she possesses – shoe gazing pop music with an adventurous side that’s indeed captivating. Intertwining shimmering synths, delicate piano chords and indie wave guitar strings to create dreamlike atmospherics which truly come to life by Day’s beautiful vocal tones and unique songwriting.
Singles Sweet Ophelia, East of Eden and Compass have sparkled the blogsphere over the last few months but it’s the new single that makes Zella Day the future pop star we’ve all been waiting for. Hypnotic is the song that’ll get everyone talking – rhythmic offbeat, glittering electronic synths and a chorus that truly embraces its name. It won’t be long before we see Zella amongst the likes of Lorde and Lana Del Rey.
Verdict – 4.5/5
Stream Hypnotic below and be sure to buy the debut EP on iTunes.
