Zella Day is a talented singer-songwriter and musician from Pinetop, Arizona. Not too long ago, she released a psychedelic music video for her celestial new tune, entitled, “Purple Haze”.
Zella Day – “Purple Haze” music video
“Forever waiting for a knock upon my door. It’s so frustrating always pacing ‘round my floor. If he’d only look my way, I’d invite him to come in. Hope and pray he’ll wipe away this apple juice from my chin. Purple haze on Saturdays smoking with no clothes on. I bet he tastes like outer space, sugar-coated ozone.” – lyrics
The audiovisual for “Purple Haze” was directed by famed artist, Neil Krug (Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey). The video features technicolor visions of Zella Day that warp and melt together like vivid hallucinations. The piece truly makes listeners feel as though they can actually taste outer space.
Furthermore, “Purple Haze” follows hot on the heels of Zella Day’s sun-soaked ballad, “People Are Strangers”, and the dazzling disco tune, “My Game”. Furthermore, “Purple Haze” marks another imaginative sonic direction from Day’s forthcoming EP, entitled, “Where Does the Devil Hide”. The anticipated project is set to be released on August 28, 2020, in partnership with Concord Records and Easy Eye Sound.
“I try to catch his eye, but he hasn’t noticed yet.”
“‘Purple Haze’ is summer love for simple pleasures. When I lived in downtown L.A., I would hum this melody while strolling to the market in the mood for something sweet. All of those perfect Saturdays with nothing to do but eat oranges and daydream.” – Zella Day
Zella Day is a free-spirited songstress in the tradition of Stevie Nicks and Dusty Springfield. She steps out of a sweet haze and into the California sun with a soulful stoned timbre and lyrical eloquence above Tarantino soundtrack-worthy disco-dripping psychedelia.
