Indie pop artist and producer daisan the coward has turned his wit to satire after lyrically baring all across seven albums. The best introduction to his new satirical future pop style is his harsh electro hit, MPDG (Manic Pixie Dream Girl).
If it was a serious pop track about the female archetype, I probably couldn’t have held back from a scathing review. Given his performative embodiment of an arrogant pop star, the Kansas City-based artist can get away with just as much as John Grant and Alex Cameron. There’s something so incredibly refreshing about an artist using some of the more devilish facets of their creativity instead of being endlessly earnest. MDPG is pure escapism music. I think we can all agree that escapism is essential in 2021.
MPDG is now available to stream on Spotify.
