album: I'm Not Getting Any Taller - Daisy the Great
words: Indigo baloch
Daisy the Great are the unapologetic boppy zingers of Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker. Their voices dance around each other like dogs or small children meeting for the first time—timid but excited all at once. They’re the kind of songs you sing alone in your bedroom to, jumping from mattress to floor with a hairbrush microphone—maybe a lavender feather boa. Shouting lines like, “Why did you waste all my time and then decide to love me? I don’t know why I loved you at all. I don’t know why I kissed you in the first place.” They’re the texts you wish you could send your exes, the things you wish you’d written in their yearbooks. They’re the diary entries you wrote at the back of the bus after school, the little prayers you put out into the universe with gel pen on pink paper. They’re heartfelt and raw lyrics coming from tender, kind voices—like whispered conversations amongst a pile of sleeping bags at a friend’s birthday sleepover, full of giggles and gossip. They’ll make you want to roller-skate through your neighborhood, to do cartwheels in the park, to eat snow cones at the city pool in your favorite swimsuit.
And we can share all those daydreams together on August 19th at The Mr. Roboto Project as they’ll be playing with locals Baseball Dad, and Dinosoul. Bring your best body glitter and your Polaroid cameras, we can cry together in the crowd, lit gold by the halo of Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling.
