KACY & CLAYTON – “THE LIGHT OF DAY “
THE SIREN’S SONG (2017)
July 4, 2018
Today’s TOTD will take you on a trip back in time circa 1969. Close your eyes, and this folksy pair of Sasketchewan-raised second cousins will have you swaying in the breeze with flowers in your hair, camping out at Woodstock. With plenty of twangy guitar riffs and honey-infused vocals to go around, “The Light of Day” will make yours.
