Fronted by Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker, Daisy The Great formed in 2016 and over the last couple of years they have been charming listeners with their blissful indie-pop sound and heartfelt lyrics. Having just signed a long-term deal with New York-based indie S-Curve Records, the duo has teamed up with AJR for their wonderful new track, Record Player.

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, Daisy The Great and AJR create an adventurous slice of music with Record Player. Pairing vibrant pop aesthetics with an indie edge, the track shines with folksy harmonies and playful instrumentals, coalescing into an infectious chorus that you won’t be able to resist. Rooted in honesty, it’s a sweetly subtle yet intimate tale about a struggle for identity that showcases Daisy The Great’s flair for poignant storytelling. The song arrives accompanied by a dazzling animated music video by Yuval Haker.

Incorporating the hook from Daisy The Great’s 2017 release The Record Player Song, the new single is taken from the duo’s forthcoming new album, set for release later this year.

Daisy The Great say about the track:

Our new song ‘Record Player (with AJR)’ incorporates the hook of our song ‘The Record Player Song’, which is actually the first track we ever released as Daisy the Great! The song is about a struggle for identity, impostor syndrome, and finding yourself stuck in a version of yourself that you created.

AJR comment:

This has never happened to us before, but we came across this Daisy the Great chorus, and thought it was the catchiest thing we’d ever heard. We thought if we could team up with the artists behind that hook and build a new song using the existing hook as the basis, it could be something pretty special.
