Ah, love in the time of coronavirus! But is it possible to date during social distancing? What of the frustrating debacle of any unrequited feelings? Austin-based songwriter Daisy O’Connor recently explained to your Austin Music Minute host via email that her new track “Evergreen” feels more relevant than ever, though it was recorded at Public Hi-Fi long before quarantine was implemented. Featuring co-producer Josh Halpern on drums and keys, and Gregory White on guitar and bass, “Evergreen” finds O’Connor facing the back-and-forth internal struggle – “It’s wrong / and it’s right,” the heart conspires with the mind.
Don’t miss O’Connor’s live stream performance at 8 p.m. tonight (Tues. April 14th) on Facebook Live. Donations welcome via Venmo, @daisy-oconnor and PayPal, paypal.me/daisyoconnor.
