Daisybones Announces Single, “Choke”
The new single from Boston indie rock band Daisybones creates a hazy atmosphere of volcanic riffs, dynamic tempo changes, and a bulldozer sized groove that never says quit. “Choke” bursts out of a smoking amplifier with explosive chord progressions and an infectious sun-drenched chorus. Off the upcoming album, Gold, out November 9. “Choke” is now streaming on all major platforms.
“Choke” packages a skyscraper sized melody with an observational social commentary. Singer/bassist Dillon Bailey explains, “It expands on a topic of a super-saturated society in which the lines of audience and entertainer, influencers and the influenced, or leaders and followers are blurred.” Nestled in between waves of electric guitars and crashing drums is a message of existential questions of purpose. The track serves itself up as a rhythmic pep talk, cheering the questioning listener on through the journey of youthful self-discovery. Buoyant guitar melodies scurry up the spine, uplifting even the most tiring thoughts of reality and growing up. Daisybones can fill a room of wandering souls with fun so pure, being anywhere else doesn't even matter. The waves of energy pour themselves onto each dancing body without a single wasted space.
The single is just one piece of the story which Gold tells through a catalyst of songs. The album is an interpretation of the theme presented in the coming of age book The Outsiders. In essence, the core thematic elements of the album’s lyrical content is identity, and through that, a question of the fragile innocence of youth. Gold, however, likens itself more to young adulthood in a post-coming of age battlecry. Throughout the 10 songs, Daisybones unleash a flurry of synth-dusted melodies that sprint through an ebb and flow of tempos and soothing sing-along choruses that dive bomb into your cerebellum. It’s an explosive and dynamic mixture that bubbles over in the best possible way. Stay gold.
