Daisy Victoria Dies For Nobody

Following the success of her acclaimed debut ‘Heart Full Of Beef’ – rising punk starlet Daisy Victoria is set to relase her new EP ‘Nobody Dies’ on 3rd November.

Named after the rousing title track the new EP is a bold step in this intriguing new artist’s career. Channelling the punk swagger of Patti Smith and the vocal complexity of a young PJ Harvey, Daisy Victoria’s accomplished sound belies her young years.

We checked out the title track:

Sharp skreek calls and low wub-wubs before slices of Copeland’sFanfare for the Common Man’ [possibly] are chipped off and slivered out … and that’s before we even get the voice.

It chimes like a bell – it is powerful, erudite and sharp – but also passionately soft. Like an ax with a blade of cashmere.

Military drums build the urgency – as synths scurry about – but the belly of this song is the voice. It reminds us of a parading Siouxsie Sioux – strong, confident, haughty and not of this world.

Dressed-up superhero sized synthesizer-rock – with romantic punkish vocals, full of toxicity and blurred detachment.
