Kristina Stykos – “State Line Diner”

“State Line Diner” is a highlight from Vermont-based artist Kristina Stykos’ most recent album, River of Light The suave, nearly stream-of-conscious feel to the vocals works well alongside the twangy, building guitar presence. The “state line diner / comin’ up fast,” chorus evokes feelings of a long road trip coming to an end, with the soothing backing vocal touch especially. A soulful guitar solo follows, with a tender-loving feel. “State Line Diner” touts a warming, familiar sound that emphasizes Stykos’ strengths as a songwriter.
