haley heynderickx – “untitled god song”

haley heynderickx arrived in full force last year with “oom sha la la,” a debut single – shrouded in the doo-wop its title suggests – presaging a powerful debut album.  that strength’s inevitability is further compounded with the recent release of a second single; “untitled god song” finds the portland singer-songwriter grappling with spirituality and hypothesizing about its physical manifestation as a reverb-drenched arrangement sways behind her lead vocal.

the cavernous depths eventually brim with the warmth of a trombone counter-melody commandeering the full band and provides an affecting template for heynderickx’ final thought, which abruptly departs into the ether.  “untitled god song” is culled from i need to start a garden, out march 2nd via mama bird recording company.  listen below.
