new music and tour: Holly Miranda

Holly Miranda, “No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross” (Sufjan Stevens Cover)”

–haunting and exquisite cover. Holly Miranda definitely embraces the happy sad in music. Her EP Party Trick [Dangerbird] is out today May 13, 2016 It features covers of Morphine (already sad), Bon Iver (mellow) and Drake.

Holly Miranda explained:  “The title of this album comes from Tegan Quinn saying I could take any song and ‘make it sad’ she said it was my ‘Party Trick.’ Some of these covers are new, but others I’ve done throughout the years. It’s just what I do for fun. Doing covers is such a great way to learn the way someone else constructs a song, if you can break that down and find your own voice in it, it can be something really interesting.”
