Erisy Watt Shares New Single ‘Big Sky’

Portland-based singer and songwriter Erisy Watt has just shared her brand new single Big Sky, the second single to be taken from her upcoming sophomore album, Eyes like the Ocean, set to arrive on April 1st via American Standard Time Records. 
What I like the most about this song has to be its warm atmosphere and how it sounds perfect for a long summer's drive. Erisy Watt's alluring vocals are quite expressive and beautifully convey the emotion of her storytelling, capturing our attention from start to finish. Big Sky is a song inspired about the connection with nature and how freeing that feeling is. This lovely song is wrapped aorund a polished blend of indie and folk elements, featuring intricate acoustic and electric guitar riffs that are nicely paired with steady drum patterns, creating an overall warm, laid-back atmosphere.

Speaking about the song, Erisy Watt said,
I wrote the first lines ‘Highway widens, lanes multiply, the forest falters to the telephone line’ while driving a stretch of Highway 1 on the pacific coast, coming back from the redwoods to the city. How rapidly I went from delight to dread. From no service and single lanes surrounded by trees and vast ocean, to traffic and trash and billboards and box stores. Whatever inspiration I had felt in those brief but glorious moments fizzled away. Yes, my cell service returned, but the connection was lost. Big sky is a reminder of that connection. It’s my translation of that feeling of freedom that comes from a road unburdened by the noise.
