Daily Distraction: Go to 'Switzerland' with Mukiss
You may know Caeleigh Featherstone from Saintseneca — that's her voice on Pillar of Na standout "Frostbiter." Or maybe you remember her from her stint in WV White. But for more than a year Featherstone has been working on a solo project, Mukiss, with a debut EP, Happy Face, slated for release on June 18.
In advance of the EP, Mukiss recently released a gorgeous single, "Switzerland," available on streaming services. In the "Switzerland" video, Featherstone, who's also a visual artist, finds a gray cinderblock barrier, takes out some cans of spray paint and transforms a drab stretch of gray wall into a misty, magical piece of public art.
"Yellow spot on a red square, coral house on mossy ground/I'd give anything just to be there," Featherstone sings, and the combination of the song's lush chamber-folk and the purples, blues and greens of the image she paints will make you yearn to be there, too, on this similarly gray day.
