Why DAYA's "Sit Still, Look Pretty" Is A Stellar Debut
Starting with a smashing Top 40 hit was one way to do it -- Daya is simply unstoppable. The vocal appearance on The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down" put the spotlight right on the Pittsburgh-bred artist, and today she's taken matters into her own hands. With the release of her first solo album, Sit Still, Look Pretty, we can confidently take her artistry in high regard.
The tracks undoubtedly have soul infused -- this artist was born to make music. Radio-friendly in the pop scene yet experimental in electronic elements, the project is a breath of fresh air on "commercial" artistry. All 14 tracks are cohesive yet bring something original in every first listen, making for a solid debut from Daya. You might recognize some previously released singles like her title track and "Cool," but now you have 12 more to look forward to. The songs are already racking up tens of thousands of plays on Spotify, and it could only go up from here.
