Faithful to her handle, singer Jess Pyrdsa AKA Datura is all about altering the vision of a traditional song narrative. Rather than take tried and true subjects like a breakup and describe them head on, Pyrdsa physiologically recreates her surroundings through careful doses of candid lyrics, delicate vocals, and dreamy, piano-driven arrangements.
Datura’s latest comes ahead of her upcoming debut album, due out later on in 2020 and comprised of years worth of emotional and musical development. You won’t need any jimsonweed to enjoy these first few chilling minutes of Datura, so kick back and let Pyrdsa be your torch song liaison on “Hotel Lobby”.
