Daisy the Great ends US tour, releases single “I'm Fine”

After releasing their full-length album “I'm Not Getting Any Taller” at the beginning of this year, Brooklyn's Daisy the Great spent time taking that material out on the road. Having just completed a tour through the midwest and southern states, the artist made a new single “I'm Fine” available. The song (streaming below) serves up a slice of whimsy via Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker's ethereal dual-harmony, in perfect folk-pop style. With a bubbly bass guitar establishing a catchy progression, bouncy percussions and electric-piano provide the sparse instrumentation for a lively word-play about the need to occasionally just let it be. Playfully rhyming the words “hello,” “yellow,” jello,” and caramello” exemplifies the impish, good-natured approach to an overall feeling of ennui: “I’m fine I’m fine - Just let me lie sometimes.” Lyrics about boredom notwithstanding, the vocal delivery and overall mood is light and airy, placing emphasis on the obvious chemistry these two singers share. The track is now available via all the streaming services. - Dave Cromwell





The Wild Honey Pie Presents: Daisy the Great @ Le Fanfare on 04.17

On I’m Not Getting Any Taller, the latest album from indie-folk outfit Daisy the Great, the duo solidifies its own voice that's equal parts heart-wrenching and humorous. From first listen you can hear how they bend seemingly cutesy harmonies and mid-tempo, acoustic ballads into revealing and hypnotic displays of genuine hurt. The mundane, the absurd and the sentimental attachments found in life are lovingly displayed but still illustrate how affecting they can be. Songs like “Dips” morph from swaying, bluesy-pop to a dreamlike oasis that slips between your fingers before it crystalizes. Like a smile that can’t help but crack, I’m Not Getting Any Taller snaps a photo of the bleak and the blithe moments of life, something that rarely sounds as good as it does here. If you want to see Daisy the Great live and enjoy cocktails, you can catch them at Manhattan's restaurant Le Fanfare on April 17, an event organized by our blogging friends The Wild Honey Pie in a collaboration with bourbon makers Noble Oak. –Tucker Pennington





Daisy the Great shares quiet single "famous" + plays string of shows in NYC

It can be easy to overlook music that gets released during the glut of year-end lists pushed out around the holidays. This is especially true for music that appears as small and unassuming as that of Daisy the Great. However, their newest single “famous” definitely deserves reexamination. Combining twee aesthetics and simple vocal harmonies, the duo packs quaint imagery into a haunting track. Ugly sweaters, gumboil rings and fitting into new shoes all act as a disarmer before the hook asks what the point of life is if there’s no possibility of fame. There’s no denying this is a straightforward presentation, with plucky guitars gently strumming along, yet it’s the clash between the hartfelt folksy delivery and the mundane topic that fills the latter with a deeper existential meaning. Daisy the Giant celebrated their album release party at Baby’s All Right on Jan. 26 and will go on to play several dates in the NYC area between February and March. -Tucker Pennington
