September 28, 2015

Oakland-grown, NYC-based singer-songwriter Jennah Bell has a new track out today called "Candied Daylight," which rides the line between folk and soul. Her arresting voice, tender yet gritty, is sweet as honey as she evokes nostalgic images of pirouettes and light, polka dots and stripes, and wishes on a cake. Click play and you'll be sunbathing in dreamy background vocals, warm bass, and twinkling chimes.

"'Candied Daylight' is the double-dutch chant heard from the windows of an open classroom window," said Bell to The FADER via email. "It is the distant and dreamy echo that steals your concentration. It is in ode and longing for the magic of youth."
