“Gorgeous. Enchanting, mind-expanding.” – Rookie

Whether alone or accompanied, Cohen brings an airy but mysterious late-’60s/early-’70s psych-folk feel to the fore, and this fanciful account of alfresco domesticity certainly feels like a slice of vintage Laurel Canyon balladry.” – NPR

The steady acoustic canter, the sighing slide guitar, the serenely idyllic images: It all suggests the balm of a gentle breeze beneath the bring sunlight, a feeling you’d want to capture indefinitely. With these three minutes, Cohen does exactly that, suspending an instant in eternal amber.” – Pitchfork on “Buddy”

 

Itasca, aka Southern California songwriter Kayla Cohen, has shared “Carousel,” a subtly stunning new song from her upcoming album Open To Chance. Rookie, who describe the record as “gorgeous; enchanting, mind-expanding,” premiered the track alongside a wide-ranging interview with Cohen that touches on everything from witchcraft in NYC to Black Mountain College in NC. On “Carousel” Cohen trades in her guitar for piano, repeating a simple motif as waves of pedal steel wash over the scene and she sings of dissatisfaction: “Cupid’s stuck inside me now, he’s trying to get out / Open the door for me, this isn’t where I want to be, he says.”

 

 

Itasca previously shared “Buddy,” from Open To Chance, which you can stream below. Preorder the album at the links above, and visit the album page for more details.
