Daisy Victoria’s debut EP, Heart Full of Beef, impressed earlier this year with its fierce yet atmospheric sound, which I compared at the time to Lower Dens and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. With gorgeous waves of distortion enveloping over Daisy’s versatile vocals, tracks like “Macbeth to My Lady” and “Heart Full of Beef” were immediately striking, thoroughly impressing with their confidence and overall sound. BBC6 and NME agreed, unleashing praise for her material.
Daisy just released a new track called “Nobody Dies”, which has already been featured on Lauren Laverne’s BBC6 show and praised by the likes of CLASH and The 405. It comes off Daisy’s new EP, her second of the year. “Nobody Dies” is quainter and more lush than the tracks featured earlier in the year, with Daisy showcasing her atmospheric abilities in addition to the rockin’ infectiousness we already knew. A steady synth arpeggio combine with growing guitar distortion for the intro, with Daisy’s crawling vocals and a quaint guitar murmur comprising much of the first few verses. The enusing chorus finds this synth/keyboard line re-entered into the fold, with Daisy showcasing her most effervescent vocal delivery yet over the bouncy keys and guitar murmurs. Lighter and more ethereal than previous efforts, “Nobody Dies” is just as captivating — in addition to showcasing some more stylistic flexibility from this talented artist.
