Zella Day has shared a new single “Holocene” featuring Weyes Blood. This comes after Day released her Where Does The Devil Hide EP last year as well as a cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train”.
Speaking on the new single Day said “Over the last year I have found myself living in two conflicted mental states. Days where I’m impassioned, so many words and thoughts surrounding our current climate extending throughout my being that it feels like a fire is burning in my skull. Hope flashes in the distance of a darkness unparalleled to anything I’ve experienced in my own lifetime, maybe there is a song in that flash of hope if I can catch it in time. The other reality is emptiness, a complete loss for words. Exhaustion. Loneliness. Sometimes loneliness becomes a giant casting a long shadow that I can’t outrun, I forget what the sun looks like and so I forget the sun. I learned not to be too hard on myself in these moments, ultimately trusting that the motivation to create would eventually come back to me. “Holocene” was the rain that fell. It’s a collection of thoughts, micro and macro, a song for the interpersonal relationship between the world inside and outside of ourselves. A “we are everything and nothing at all” mantra.”
