Delyn Grey – “Daddy’s Love”

“Daddy’s Love” is an emotive, dark rocker from Delyn Grey. The Toronto-based artist struts a menacing sound, with ghostly piano touches and climactic percussion rising alongside a grave vocal tone. The soaring chorus, emerging just past the one-minute mark, exudes a more anthemic quality. Bass and guitar pair enjoyably at 01:40, with ensuing percussive pitter-patter also leading to the next chorus, the “drain me,” refrain engrossing with each repetition. “Daddy’s Love” is an impressive showing from Delyn Grey.

“I want to make music that’s fearless,” Grey says. “I don’t want people to hear it and think I played it safe. My art wants purpose and I work hard to serve that. I work equally as hard to find purpose in my art.”

“I want people to feel empowered to deflect other people’s defeatist projections with this one. I love this song, man. It’s gotten me through some serious mind-screws. It’s a relief. Don’t ever let anyone dictate what your relationship with your passion, loved-ones, and yourself look like. It’s not up to them and you must be pretty cool if people are trying to keep you from reaching your full potential, ha! Be fearless, be unapologetic, and maybe take the high road instead of calling out their daddy issues…? Keep doing you. I hope you find something for you in this track.”

“Daddy’s Love” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2021’ Spotify playlist.
