Brooklyn, NY-based indie pop band, Daisy the Great have shared their new single, “Aluminum,” today via S-Curve/Hollywood Records. The track arrives alongside an official video, which was directed by Zach Tavel (Band of Horses), and was taken from the band’s upcoming album, ALL YOU NEED IS TIME, out October 28th. Watch the video below and pre-order the album now HERE.
“‘Aluminum’ was actually the last song we wrote for the album,” say Daisy the Great’s Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker. “We wrote it with our pal Gabe Goodman, and it is about self-perception. It’s the feeling of time moving forward and taking a version of you with it that you don’t feel connected to – as if your social persona or personality, some shinier version of you, has taken over, and you don’t know how to be your real self anymore.”
“The music video for ‘Aluminum,’ directed by Zach Tavel, is about an older set of twins coming to a breaking point in their relationship. We were talking with Zach about the meaning of the song – feeling stuck behind a version of yourself that doesn’t feel like you at your core – and we eventually landed on this idea of twins with a turbulent relationship. One twin seems to call the shots for both of them and the other’s resentment grows as she longs for independence and sense of self. And we are a mini band stuck in a jukebox at their house.”
