In the competitive world of the music industry it takes great talent to receive national acclaim with only an EP on your roster. Not a lot of bands can say they’ve done this, but Nashville based alt-punk band Daisyhead can. With only four songs under their belt, the quartet received overnight success and garnered attention from label No Sleep Records.
Originally coming from much heavier projects; Michael Roe, Adam Easterling, Curtis Durard, and Zach Chiarizzio decided to try something new. Like all bands starting out, the boys drew from their musical influences and started jamming together. Little did they know that they would create something magical. Raw, relentless, unapologetic yet delicate, Daisyhead’s sound was born. Their I Couldn’t Face You EP was produced by notable Nashville producer Blake Griffin. Griffin took the bands original sound and evolved it into something bigger. Mixing the heavier influences of the band members previous projects and creating boisterous drums, aggressive guitars, pulsating rhythm section, and delicate vocals.
Not only does I Couldn’t Face You showcase their musical prowess, it also shines light on their story telling abilities. The EP is story in four parts that represents a chaotic time in Michael Roe’s life.
