SOTD: Halcyon Days – Siobhán Donaghy

Song: Halcyon Days
Artist: Siobhán Donaghy
Album: Ghosts
Genre: Alternative/Pop
In short: The first member to disband from the Sugagabes, Siobhán Donaghy, has released two solo albums since parting ways with the other members. Her sophomore album saw her working with producer James Sanger, whose production credits include U2, Keane, and Dido. The ethereal “Halcyon Days” is a moody number dotted with rays of hope; Donaghy sings so delicately, as if the melody could be broken by a puff of air. Sound-wise, “Halcyon Days” is the kind of song you’d imagine mermaids singing deep down in the ocean.

SOTD: The Way It Is – Nicole Atkins


Song
: The Way It Is
Artist: Nicole Atkins
Album: Neptune City
In short: You may have never heard of Nicole Atkinn, but her music is so charming and “authentic”, this song, the first single “The Way It Is” is the only reason anyone would need to convince anyone to love her, it’s just.. perfect! of course if you’re not into folksy stuff, it might be hard for you to like her, but please.. do give her a chance, her voice is magnificent! here’s a live performance of the song, it’s simply fantastic, but it starts a bit slow, guessing she was nervous, but she aces it towards the end.
