Listen to Abi Reimold cover “Standing In the Sun” by Jessica Lea Mayfield
Abi Reimold and Jessica Lea Mayfield‘s musical paths cross at several points, one of which is their shared ability to turn bleak, heavy subject matter into darkly glimmering gems of songs. Reimold opened for Mayfield in Lancaster last month and has now posted a cover of the latter’s “Standing in the Sun” on Soundcloud.
Dedicated to those dealing with Seasonal Affective Disorder, Reimold’s version of “Standing in the Sun” opens with gently layered vocals and sparse but warm keys. A synth winds its way through an intermittent crunchy guitar, paired together as though briefly showing the shadows cast by the otherwise radiant and ethereal sun.
Abi will join Madalean Gauze, Candice Martello, Cat Park and more local musicians at tomorrow’s Free at Noon tribute to Patti Smith’s Horses. Join us for the live midday concert by RSVPing here and listen to “Standing In the Sun” below.
