S.J. Armstrong’s “Some Restful Day” is a piece of dreamy atmospheric indie rock that will stick with listeners long after the single ceases to play. There is a very deliberate approach that is taken during the song that gradually builds to something intense. Wholly engrossing from the onset, it is not a surprise that the track’s four-plus minute run time goes by quickly. Coming forth with a new tack on a well-trod style is always a hard thing to do, but Armstrong is able to make an indelible imprint upon indie with this single. While one could easily leave the song on and do chores, we’d recommend strapping on a pair of earphones and really engaging yourself with this song.
