Daisy Dares YouHere at TGTF we tend to write about what we feel passionate about, rather than what is seen to be “cool”. If it has a good tune, or makes us feel something we write about it.

That’s exactly the case with Daisy Dares You. We first introduced her back in May. It’s pure and simple great pop – Think La Roux sassy and Lily Allen fun and you’re halfway there. It’s like Girls Aloud in one person. Excitable? Us? Never (!). We were fortunate enough to be given a quick sneak peak of her debut self-titled album the other day – and it’s pretty amazing.

“Rosie” sounds like a great Avril Lavigne track fronted by someone a million times more intelligent – the sort of track that Disney would love to have on High School Musical if it didn’t have so many synths and exhaust the audience after about 10 seconds. “Who Will Buy” shows some of the punchiness that made me fall in love with Daisy – only 2 1/2 minutes long, but it’s completely absent of filler.

“Stuck and Still” is the first of two slower tracks. Showing off Daisy’s fragile voice whilst a gentle heartbeat pulses in the background. “Next Few Minutes” brings the pace up a bit, but is still an end of the night sort of tune, wandering back home with the sun slowly coming up.

I’m not 100% sure when this album will be coming out, but don’t be surprised if you hear it all over Radio 1 andyour local version of Heart before too long…
