Former lead singer of Rainer Maria, Caithlin De Marrais, is set to release her sophomore album Red Coats via End Up on November 8. The beloved indie rock star, whose voice is both delicate and honest, tapped the Poison Tree‘s Steve Salett and Josh Kaufman for co-production of her new project, which is sure to beat the dreaded sophomore slump.
 
“Birds,” the lead single from the new album, has an easiness to it. De Marrais’ soothing voice and uplifting lyrics leave you with a sense of nostalgia that will almost make you give up your seat on the subway. Almost.
 
If you need a pick me up or simply enjoy beautifully sung songs, consider her your refuge. Check out the video for “Birds” below.
