Track of the Day: 'Overdrawn'

Past TracksWhite Sea is the nom-de-rock for a singer-songwriter from L.A. named Morgan Kibby. If that name rings a distant bell, it's probably because she spent most of 2008 and 2009 on the road with M83 as a keyboard player and backing vocalist. As great as that experience was, Kibby is now focusing on solo work, and I think she really deserves a spotlight of her own.

"Overdrawn" begins with a dull keyboard throb, but quickly the pace picks up and Morgan's bright tones and superb vocal chops come to the fore. Over the next three minutes, you'll get everything from hand claps to late-'70's keyboard sounds lifted straight from a golden-era Fleetwood Mac LP. But Morgan's sing-along tone and breathy vocals really are the stars of the show. Blend all of these unlikely ingredients and I think you'll agree that she's got what it takes to write a brilliant pop tune. Just perfect for a sunny day!
