Haley Heynderickx - "Untitled God Song"

Haley Heynderickx has been on my radar ever since I first heard her ridiculously great song "Oom Sha La La." That was way back in September, which feels like roughly five years ago right now, so I was starting to think she was a figment of my hopes and dreams for 2018. Luckily, I didn't imagine her, and she's back with another song off her upcoming album. "Untitled God Song" starts off as a pretty straightforward folk song in the vein of the current Newport Folk Festival friendly artists. Heynderickx's voice feels vulnerable yet strong. Slowly the song starts transforming and showing some of its quirks, until it breaks out into some 90's style indie rock. It's still somehow melodic and quiet even at its most rambunctious, so this is basically my idea of perfection.

You can listen to "Untitled God Song" below. Haley Hyderickx's debut album, I Need to Start a Garden, will be out March 2 on Mama Bird Recording Co. You can pre-order your copy of the album on Bandcamp. For more on Haley Heynderickx, check her out on Facebook and Twitter.
