First Day Of My Life Feat. Goody Grace by Gnash
A resonant acoustic guitar complements a young voice with an old soul in Gnash’s rendition of “First Day of My Life” featuring Goody Grace. Goody Grace embellishes the track with sultry harmonies and a breathy verse with decades of inspiration shining through. This minimalistic cover, originally performed by Bright Eyes, maintains the vulnerable vocals that popularized the song. Gnash is brittle yet heartfelt while Goody Grace adds the powerful polish to round out the track. Both performers give the listener a sense of beautiful desperation without compromising the original feeling behind this acoustic hit. Conor Oberst would be proud and appreciate the “real” factor that both artists bring forward.
