The desert's answer to Lana del Rey has arrived and her name is Zella Day. But don't be so quick to write this L.A.-by-way-of-Pinetop singer off as an LdR knock-off. She recently explained the comparison to the vintage-inspired morose pop star in an interview with Paste:
“I can see it because there is a very timeless element to both of our sounds,” Day says, before countering: “But after people watch me perform, they don’t tell me I sound like Lana Del Rey.”
Day is promoting the summer release of her debut album, Kicker, on a tour that will bring her through Tucson on Friday, Sept. 18. The show at 191 Toole (191 E. Toole Ave.) starts at 8 p.m. and it is an all ages event. Tickets are $12, which can be found online in advance via Ticketfly.
You can also check out her trippy video for the song "Hypnotic," which seems to mimic some Jodorowsky imagery but with tons of sex so you know it's still pop music.
