Zella Day is stoking the final golden, glowing embers of summer on “Benny My Dear.” “I just wanna tell you when you’re down on yourself/I won’t be out looking ‘round for nobody else,” assures Zella on the Where Does the Devil Hide EP closing cut – a sun-saturated slice of 70s rock-and-roll as produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

“Selfless love acts without expectation of receiving anything other than the satisfaction of giving. Benny has been crying out for affection for far too long, he struggles to believe that he deserves it. Benny reminds us that vulnerability is the only way out and the only way in.” – Zella Day Listen to Zella Day’s “Benny My Dear,” from ‘Where Does The Devil Hide’ EP: Out now.

ZELLA DAY – ” Hypnotic “

Posted: March 17, 2015 in MUSIC

Zella Day’s breakout has been years in the making, with periodic highlights along the way. In 2012, Day’s acoustic cover of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” rose to the top of Hype Machine’s chart. That feat was repeated more recently with her own composition, “Sweet Ophelia,” a sun-flared pop track that begins with a blown-out beat and builds to a soaring, synth-boosted chorus. Similarly lush hooks surface throughout her four-track EP. She’s been mistakenly labeled Day as an electro-pop artist, but her folk and rock leanings are more evident in her live performances. All of her songs originate on guitar and that even her most produced and polished tracks can be performed acoustically. You might even catch her cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues
