What you should know from the artist:
An up-and-coming indie-pop artist, songwriter, and producer based in Nashville, TN, Stacey Kelleher is a force to be reckoned with. Inspired by artists like LANY, Holly Humberstone, Lennon Stella, and Phoebe Bridgers, Stacey’s pop melodies and detailed storytelling give her a fresh, unique voice.
About “UFO”: You know that feeling you get when everything’s going too well and your relationship seems too good to be true, and then you think yourself into oblivion worrying about all of the worst-case scenarios? “UFO” tells the story of a perfect, healthy relationship, where Stacey questions how on Earth she’d go on without her partner. Stacey and co-writers Cole Miracle and Emily Gurklis cleverly tie in lyrics with the spacey production, and elements like pedal steel and stacked background vocals bring a dreamy vibe reminiscent of Kacey Musgraves, Lennon Stella, and Holly Humberstone.
