Zella Day‘s intimate approach to songwriting can lead listeners of her new album Kicker to feel like they know her very well, yet nothing compares to the intimacy of actually hanging out with her! That’s what Pandora did for a recent interview with Day, meeting the singer-songwriter at home she shares with housemate and musical collaborator Garrett Borns (BØRNS). Enjoy the tour of Day’s house, accompany her as she walks her dog Mitsi, and catch a glimpse of her sunny Los Angeles lifestyle here.
Kicker is full of lush orchestration and huge beats, making it one of the most layered albums at college radio right now. Still, some stations have mentioned how much they enjoy the pared-down versions of Zella’s songs. Just ask Naked Noise, who recently posted a stripped-down version of her standout track “Sweet Ophelia.” Watch her performance, accompanied only by a pair of acoustic guitars that bring her captivating vocals front and center, here.
