Sweet Ophelia / by E

L.A. based artist Zella Day's single offers up swelling melodies, sultry vocals, and a heavy rhythm that sucks into the track within seconds. 

With its soft allusions to Hamlet's naive Ophelia (who placed such an emphasis on the love of one man) intermixing gorgeously with Day's personal feelings, the song's power lies not only in its lyrics (whose opening verse states "leave me now you're too young girl, cherry pie with your gold curls, growing up like a grapevine, wrapped around you in due time" with amazing aplomb) but also in a composition which proudly displays a wide range of instrumentation, including the gorgeous fusion of low trumpets holding steady over a pretty, wandering piano melody.
