TOTD: Nica “Ashes”

 

Check out this spacey song with a familiar “allusion” to a certain song about children dying from the plague. This one seems to focus on an emotional death, mainly of friendship.

“Besties forever says a locket that’s lost
Buried under consuming flaws
Noticing absence surrounded by dust
Ashes to ashes all fall down

Remembering lovers in awe at first meet
Discussed plans, high hopes, real dreams
Fired by passion, add details, we drowned
Ashes to ashes all fall down”

At its core the song seems to ask you to remember that nothing is permanent, friendship, our bodies, life itself. That could be a really depressing message, but the song seems to try to take a positive out of it when it urges us to:

“Make life count everyday
It’s so special
Ashes to ashes all
Fall down”

Bio:  Ashes is the second track on Nica’s upcoming album Bruised

Her album Bruised reflects the painful beauty of growth from personal experiences

Nica’s songwriting does not follow the standard formula that ears have grown tired of

Her soulful style is nostalgic, raw, and real

Bruised Release Date 08/31/18

TOTD: Grizzly Buddha – “Chalis”

 

We have an excellent track for you for today’s Track of the Day. The harmonies in this song immediately blew me away. And it has some great southern style guitar riffs that work relentlessly throughout it. They self describe their sound as “unique with a familiar feel,” and I couldn’t agree more. It has elements of some old greats like Patsy Cline or Janis Joplin, mixed with some modern influence (I hear some First Aid Kit and some Black Keys or Portugal. The Man).

You can find their newest release It’ll Be Too Late When You’re Dead wherever you enjoy music. I think that album title is very appropriate to their artistic expression. Go make things now, ’cause it’ll be too late when you’re dead. And I’m so glad Grizzly Buddha didn’t wait.
