Based in Brooklyn, Daisy the Great, singer-songwriters Kelley & Mina, have been building a fanbase ever since they became ‘TikTok’ famous in 2017 with ther track ‘The Record Player Song’. They have become adept at fusing melancholic, socially-relevant vocals and angelic harmonies and have been compared to First Aid Kit and Kimya Dawson.
‘To Be Alive’ is their new single, taken from their spring EP ‘soft songs’. I really like the acoustic, raw feel of the track, and its soft melodies transport me back to the summer, when this was the style of music I was listening to.
Speaking about the track Kelley & Mina had the following to say: “We wrote these songs over facetime while self isolating. Min recorded them in her bedroom and Kel sent over her voice recorded on an iPhone. Our buddy Jake Cheriff mixed and mastered them for us. These songs are a hug for anyone who needs one. We hope that they can help remind people that there is room for calm and comfort in the midst of chaos and uncertainty.”
