After a short absence, Klara Zangerl returns with her latest single, Trial Day.
The 19-year-old debuted in 2018, and we last heard Klara in 2020 with the jazzy and futuristic soul of Mars 2022. Trail Day hears Klara’s music sphere twist and expands as she blends her smooth soul vocals with soaring pop dynamics.
Every day during this pandemic has felt like ‘a trial’, and it would have been understandable if this was the inspiration of the song. Trial Day’s theme is however an uplifting song of self-reflection.
’Trial Day is about times when you’re trying too hard. I think everyone should aim to be their best authentic selves, but many people want to present a perfect image instead of looking within. Have we not learned that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? A pretty book with a selling summary is probably not the best book. This song is a somewhat ironic experience of passively judging others yet being so yourself’, Klara says.
Inspired by artists such as BANKS, FKA Twigs, and Erykah Badu, Klara Zangerl continues exploring her forms of expression, and her second EP, due later this year, will no doubt serve equally satisfying selections.
