It may have a mere three months left to go but 2014 has already been a very good year for Daisy Victoria. Since we first featured her at the end of January (as part of Blogathon) she has gone from strength to strength and her profile has gone up and up and up. She’s had support and radio play from 6Music, Radio 1 and BBC Introducing, played Latitude and Norwich Sound and Vision Festivals, released her debut EP, Heart Full of Beef and is about to release the follow-up, Nobody Dies.
Steadily over recent months the blog world has woken up to her potential as well (hell, we love her so much we even went back and re-introduced her), and the title track from her new EP was premiered on Clash and the video (which you can watch below) via The 405. Also, she is legitimately lovely, humble and grateful for all the support she has been getting, both publically and privately. All of which makes us all the happier for the successes she has had and no doubt will continue to have in the future.
All of which brings us to the aforementioned title track from her new EP, “Nobody Dies”.
It’s less overtly dramatic than her previous offerings, showcasing a softer and altogether more swirlsome side of her musical personality. Keys peel like church bells and the rhythm tumbles as Daisy’s vocals and the melody combine in one great wispy marble of sound and colour. The accompanying video is suitably bright and kaleidoscopic, perfectly encapsulating the cascading and swoony nature of the track.
She’s also really good live and has a few London dates coming up (details below) in advance of the EP release in November.
Daisy Victoria live dates:
17th October – London, Hope and Anchor, Islington
28th October – London, Sebright Arms
31st October – Norwich, Epic Studios w/ Martha Wainwright
20th November – London, Dublin Castle
