Vancouver-based Eden Fine Day of the Sweetgrass First Nation in Saskatchewan has released her first solo album “Things Get Better” and frankly it’s great. Known as the front woman of the mighty and melodic all-girl band Vancougar, Fine Day’s newest offering is potent, poetic pop at it’s best.
Produced by Jesse Gander (Japandroids) in his studio at the Hive Creative Labs in Burnaby, BC, all twelve songs on Things Get Better were written and performed by Fine Day, along with some of Vancouver’s finest musicians to round out her vocals and guitar with percussion, bass, strings and keyboards. The result is an intimate, personal, yet totally accessible confessional pop album. As a 3rd generation survivor of the Indian Residential School legacy, Fine Days writes with straight to the point and straight to the heart wit, clarity, and poignancy, drawing musically from range of urban, folk, rock and atmospheric sounds.
