JULIE DOIRON’S stirring song “Consolation Prize” from the recent release I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day was recently featured as NPR’s Song of the Day.
NPR had these wonderful things to say about how Julie effectively rips the listener’s heart out with the tune: “In ‘Consolation Prize,’ Doiron addresses a man, living in the aftermath of a breakup, who finds that his friends won’t let him leave it behind. ‘People insisted on telling you what a great couple you had been / They insisted on telling you over again,’ she sings over a rumbling bassline. By bringing up the pain wrought from sympathy, she’s effectively doing the same thing, but Doiron isn’t going for a palliative here. For two short, bruising minutes, she wants listeners to live in the ache of loss.”
