The cover, “Fourth of July”, is originally a Sufjan Stevens number off his critically acclaimed Carrie & Lowell album, and is performed by both Quigley and her tour-mate Stephen Alexander. No stranger to hushed confessionals, Quigley and Alexander do the song justice, applying its diary to hazy and atmospheric glitches and reversed firework visualizations.
Kelly Quigley and Stephen Alexander will tour CT and the East Coast this spring. Check out the dates below:
