Mikaela Davis – Promise
Mikaela Davis and Southern Star release what might be my favorite single off of their upcoming LP. “Promise” leans into the weathered denim aesthetics that have become the hallmark of her new album. A slight impression of Fleetwood Mac hangs over the song, though it seems she was struck with the track’s melody while at a Phil Lesh concert, dashing to privacy to record it as a voice memo before fleshing it out with drummer Alex Coté for the new album. The song’s themes of a relationship crumbling through missed cues and unfulfilled expectations get swept up in the song’s sun-braised guitar. The new record, And Southern Star, is out August 4th from Kill Rock Stars.
