Winter seems to suck the color from our world, replacing vibrancy with white, staleness, cold. Julie Byrne's "Natural Blue" is a much needed reminder of how striking the scenes around us can be. It's an intensely spiritual and simple four minutes, Byrne leading us through the places, towns and memories she's seen before. As the path winds on there's one constant among it all - the natural blue sky. It's a permanent background in memories and moments, a stillness that matches Byrne's remarkably delicate vocals. The single comes from Not Even Happiness out 1/27.
