Canadian duo Dala recently released their third studio album, Best Day. Dala’s penchant for peppy country-pop harmonies and melodic folk-pop melodies fall somewhere between Lady Antebellum and Sylvie Lewis.
The album begins with mandolin-accented country-pop ballad “Life on Earth,” which shows off the girls’ pretty, soprano-alto harmonies.
The title track dances and sways on sweet vocals, tinkling piano and buoyant strings. It sounds like the theme to a French romantic comedy.
The stunner “Lennon & McCartney” lives up to its title with an impressive and catchy piano melody. The lyrics are a pop culture cornucopia with references to everything from Shakespeare to Annie Hall. You can watch the video below.
Whispery vocals and sparse piano give “Father” a haunting intimacy.
And despite the overly precious blooper reel attached to it, I just couldn’t resist the perky and all too brief acapella finale “Too Many Kittens.”
