'The Wings' music video premiered on The Stranger!

"The lead track from Seattle vocalist/pianist Shenandoah Davis's Souvenirs, "The Wings" epitomizes her ambitious compositional skills while showcasing her buoyant voice and perceptive lyrics (Souvenirs is being promoted as an unconventional breakup album, and its emotional heft is substantial; plus, it was recorded in a Brooklyn apartment with Sam Miller). This is exquisitely melodious pop that harks back to the lilting charm of '60s girl groups, but with the orchestral grandeur of Scott Walker's first four solo albums and the icy-sweet spaciousness of Mercury Rev's Deserter's Songs/All Is Dreamera." - Dave Segal, The Stranger

Orbit featured as Song of the Day on KEXP!

"Seattle singer/songwriter Shenandoah Davis approached the recording of her third LP, Souvenirs, in precisely the same way she’s always crafted her lush, twinkling chamber-pop: effortlessly and with a head full of dreams. Modestly recorded in producer Sam Miller’s Brooklyn apartment, Souvenirs documents the break-up of a relationship with charm and humor, Davis ceremoniously picking apart the threads that weave two people together.

“Orbit,” with its verdant instrumentation and honeyed, intimate vocals, flips the break-up song narrative on its head, Davis instead delighting in the end of her romance. “I’m thrilled/out of your orbit,” she sings, “I’m done/I can’t afford it/Nothing to gain from wearing your name.” And in her trademark style, she manages to make this unshackling sound as uplifting as the start of a promising new courtship." - Cheryl Waters, KEXP
