Daisy O’Connor Shares Still Life off Ether EP
Austin’s Daisy O’Connor is ready to share her hard work with everyone this week; she’ll drop her Ether EP this Friday. She’s graced us with one of the standout tracks, set to footage of the Hill Country rolling behind an image of herself. It’s a special number, beginning with Daisy softly draping her voice atop a fairly bare piano line; there’s cascading guitar and soft percussion, adding to the emotional draw. But, just after the 2 minute mark, the song begins to swell. The piano is more emphatic, strings emerge and that guitar dances in with a solo of its own, capping off the tune gorgeously. It’s a powerful tune, but just one of the handful that will appear on Ether; you can catch Daisy at Cosmic Coffee & Beer on Sunday (2/10) if you’re in the Austin area.
