Itasca: "After Dawn"


Kayla Cohen, formerly known from her project Sultan, returned in 2012 with her newer endeavour as Itasca.  Readying for a brief winter tour, Cohen has shared a track from her tour cassette which are, as of now, all demos for her forthcoming album. From the sounds of demo “After Dawn,” the sparse acoustic style of her previous releases, Grace Riders on the Road and Proto, remains. There is a shift, though, in that her sound feels much lighter. There is a bare tenderness about “After Dawn,” reflected both in the depth of her voice as well in the delicate and potent guitar strummings.

Be sure to catch Itasca perform at the Silent Barn tonight in between sets of King Cyst and Volunteers Park.  Also, peep her winter tour dates with Ivy Meadows after the jump.
