Combining both organic and electronic elements for a relaxing and atmospheric listen is “Icon (The Day Version)” by Dakota. If you need something to soothe your mind this Wednesday you might consider checking it out. Lyrically the song is introspective and dreamy. Soothing and vibey this song reminds me of long night drives in the country or winter in the city. What drew me in initially was the delay used on the lead vocal line and I stuck around for the melody and soundscape qualities in this delightful indie track.
