Zella Day’s enigma of sound has adapted from the new-Americana to something far more fresh and filled with funk. Single-handedly, she may very well bring us back into a world of disco and seductively catchy love songs. Throughout 2021, her last few releases touched on the embodiment of the feminine, especially in “Girls.” Her newest release, “Golden,” continues along the same thread while expanding into the realm of the intangible and unknown.
The Genesis of “Golden” happened as a tornado was tearing through Nashville and whispers of a global pandemic were evolving past a rumor. I was in Alabama writing with John Paul White as my phone was lighting up with messages from friends and family back home, I was supposed to drive back to Nashville that evening but plans changed like the weather. In the stillness of the studio “Golden” was written communicating with powers beyond my control, expressing and coping with the magnitude of the situation by creating art, singing a melody into the moment to address its fragility and infinite beauty.
