The band’s frontperson, Jordanna Felice, has a powerful and emotive voice that perfectly captures the essence of the song, while the band’s additional instrumentation creates a lush and atmospheric backdrop for the vocals. The sense of urgency drives the message home and makes them feel even more profound compared to the original.
This take on “First Day of My Life” is a testament to Eithermore’s versatility. Their ability to seamlessly blend different genres and styles is a hallmark of their sound, and this cover is a prime example of their talent.

According to reports, the band is going back to their roots with a more stripped-down singer-songwriter approach.

“I want the new music to speak for itself. This is why I decided to release this stripped Bright Eyes cover from a session in 2019. “First Day Of My Life”, is a song by one of my biggest influences Bright Eyes. It’s one of those songs that I always come back to. It resonates with me in new ways over time, and reminds me of all of my past and present loves. It felt appropriate to release it on Valentine’s Day. Grateful that some of my best friends worked on this track with me. Zachary Kirsimae accompanied me on the bass, and Zach TK Zanghi did all the production and engineering. I’m so excited to be releasing new music and entering a new era of Eithermore and this is a little sneak peak of what’s to come.” – Eithermore
