What A day by Dutch singer-songwriter Penny Roox describes the feeling of being torn between two worlds after a breakup. Even though the relationship is over, you still feel the other person’s presence whenever you do anything. It’s the kind of feeling that’s especially strong in the morning, when the sun streams through the windows and you’re reminded of all the times you spent together. The lyrics are incredibly powerful and provide a very relatable perspective on heartbreak. We can’t help but feel emotional when we listen to this song.
The production of What A day relies primarily on acoustic guitars and minimal beats. This gives the song a sentimental tone that matches its lyrics. Roox’s singing sounds absolutely breathtaking. In an industry where Auto-Tune is used liberally, it’s refreshing to hear a voice that’s unprocessed.
