Take a walk through relatable growing pains with the third alt-indie single from South London-residing artist DAAY that emanates the same chaos as Oh Sees alongside a James Brown-Esque serving of soul. Little Foot is an intoxicating mash of ingenuity that proves there’s plenty more to art-rock than Radiohead.
With sax solos that scream with the same visceral furore as Pete Wareham’s strident howls, nostalgic bluesy licks, and a general state of inhibition and instability running right through the release, Little Foot is for every music fan who thrives on finding authenticity alongside relatable insanity.
Little Foot conceptually shares the frustration of needing to answer endless questions as we navigate our dark and often fetid landscapes as adults while it imparts the nostalgia of childhood simplicity and ignorance. In the process, DAAY paints the process of disillusion with the world as a universal one. If the world ever needed a reminder that no one’s life – regardless of social media statuses – is a bed of roses, it’s right now. DAAY discernibly delivered with this consistently volatile aural exploration of style.
The release of Little Foot was an efficacious way of creating an appetite for the solo artist’s forthcoming singles, due for release in 2021. Save space on your radar.
Little Foot will be available to stream and purchase on all major platforms from May 28th.
