Best New Tracks: Koda "Staying"
Koda "Staying" is one of those cool songs that just puts you at ease regardless of what you're going through. In fact, I'm going to go ahead and make it my official song to listen to after a sh*t day.
The tranquil sounds of Koda reminded us of Bon Iver, Perfume Genius, and fellow BNTer RY X. On "Staying," Jordan Sudak displays his pristine vocals. Seriously, dude's voice is so pure that you'd think he'd never smoked, or even had anything with carbonation in it to drink. There's also some intricate guitar work that bookends the song, as well as a haunting piece of piano to really smooth things out. What a wonderful track to remind us all how light our burdens really are.

You can find the not-so-subtly Christian lyrics for Koda "Staying" below:
as winter takes me nowâ€¨ of cold and clammy skin â€¨a barren empty womb â€¨as i am born again
it's pulling at my hairâ€¨ and crawling all withinâ€¨ a gentle beating heart â€¨is swept away by sin
the monster in your headâ€¨ won't surface again â€¨be still my childâ€¨ wash away the sin
and i as future kingsâ€¨ walk off the edgeâ€¨ hold me by my nameâ€¨ hold me til the end
