The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Thursday, June 25
Over the course of quarantine, we’ve certainly seen plenty of artists being resourceful, by creating by whatever means are available to them.
However, it’s safe to say that we’ve rarely seen anything as innovative as today’s Daily Spinn.
Los Angeles-based pop artist Sherry-Lynn Lee released a video for her latest single, “Wasted Space In My Heart,” a couple weeks back. What’s particularly interesting about this — aside from it being a fun and catchy alt-pop tune — is that the track’s percussion comes to us entirely by way of office supplies. Lee utilized a pencil jar for hi-hat, a notebook as a kick drum, and a business card as a slap, and demonstrates her proficiency on each “instrument” on the entirely self-produced single.
In addition to making the most out of her shelter-in-place experience from a musical standpoint, Lee has also spent time advocating against injustice in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. Lee has developed a letter template to be sent to companies that have stayed silent during civil unrest, and keeps an updated list tracking responses from music-related organizations to the Black Lives Matter movement.
With that, we present “Wasted Space In My Heart” to you as today’s Daily Spinn. Watch the magic below!
