Having emerged as a solo artist in 2014 with the release of two critically acclaimed EPs (‘Heart Full of Beef’ and ‘Nobody Dies’), Daisy Victoria quickly gained attention from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. Her developing success also earned the young star support dates with Canadian-American folk rocker Martha Wainwright on her UK tour in October 2014. Almost a year later, Daisy Victoria is back with her brand new single ‘Pain of Dancers’.

Recorded at 4AD’s London studio and mixed by Damian Taylor (best known for working with Bjork, Arcade Fire and Robyn) at Golden Ratio in Montreal, ‘Pain of Dancers’ is four minutes of pure, raw emotion. This captivating track showcases Daisy Victoria’s operatic vocals over noir-esque synths, a sparkling guitar line and driving drums.

‘Pain of Dancers’, which was written by Daisy and her brother/songwriting partner Sam Lawrence, combines elements of mainstream pop with a beautifully charming, irresistible sound. The result is a track that contains the enchanting charm Daisy Victoria’s existing fanbase have come to know and love, while also appealing to a wider audience.

Ultimately, ‘Pain of Dancers’ is a fine example of Daisy Victoria’s talents and the output she is capable of. With a sound many existing artists could only dream of after two EPs, you can’t help but wonder what other tricks this intriguing, gifted young artist has up her sleeves. If she’s not already on your radar, make sure Daisy Victoria is, as there are big things to come from this small star.

9/10

Daisy Victoria’s single ‘Pain of Dancers’ will be released on the 25th of September. If you can’t wait until then, you can catch Daisy Victoria at her headline show at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington in London on Monday, the 21st of September.
