Daddy Issues Celebrate New LP ‘Deep Dream’ TONIGHT @ The East Room w/ Sad Baxter & Dream Wave

DaddyIssues2017-620

Following a string of stellar singles in recent months, local grunge pop trio Daddy Issues have finally released their full-length debut, Deep Dream, today through Infinity Cat Records. One of our favorite local groups to emerge in recent years, and one whose career ascent has been a real treat to watch, the record is a huge leap in songwriting, production, and musicality, tapping into the band’s innate knack for crafting personal, empowered, and raw rock. Naturally, the group are celebrating with a hometown show, set to take place tonight, May 19 at The East Room, along with Sad Baxter and Dream Wave– all for just $5!

After getting their start as a parody of Twitter account before taking up instruments and deciding to make a go at becoming a proper band (a refreshing anthesis to the over-trained, uber-techincal typical Nashville trajectory), Daddy Issues garnered immediate attention in 2014 with a pair of early singles, “Pizza Girl” and “Ugly When I Cry,” paving the way for 2015 cassette/mini album, Can We Still Hang. With a self-described sound that “lies somewhere between witchy grunge and surf glam,” the trio’s lyrical prowess, a mix of empowerment and lighthearted, sarcastic self-awareness, provides a surprisingly poignant juxtaposition to their raw instrumentation, and has helped the group quickly find themselves on the road, on festival bills, and the subject of national press.

Over the last couple of years, Daddy Issues have really come into their own both as a live presence and as songwriters, and with Deep Dream, a leap in maturity and the most fully realized batch of songs the band have produced to date, the band unlock the genuine musical greatness we’ve long known them to be capable of. Needless to say, the album is essential listening, so find it on your streaming platform of choice, pick up a copy here or at your favorite record store, stream the four previously-released singles below, and don’t sleep on tonight’s release show- it’s the must-see local event of the weekend.

Daddy Issues, Sad Baxter, and Dream Wave will perform tonight, May 19 at The East Room. The show is 18+, begins at 8 p.m., and tickets are available to purchase for $5.
