"Glitter" by Daisy the Great
Feeling lost in the moment? Let’s face it. Growing up, especially in the times we live in, isn't easy. One day, you’re floating high like Mary Poppins and the next, the world comes crashing down. ‘Glitter’ by Daisy the Great echoes the complex emotions associated with personal battles and trying to make sense of life transitions. “Yell out loud at an old bowl of cereal, I’ll clean up if anyone’ll come”. They depict an existential crisis in such a brilliant and innovative way. It’s almost haunting.
From the very beginning, you’re transported to another world with a psychedelic, dreamy intro. Then the lyrics rush in with a vengeance. “I neglected my plants to prove I would, should’ve let the sun in, would've done us good; I’m just rotten to the core, such a bore, such a wannabe”. *Spoiler Warning!* The verses WILL call you out. Every single element, from the grounding power of drums and bass guitar to the placement of soft chimes, is layered like a perfectly made tiramisu. Soft-spoken, yet melancholy harmonies transform into back-and-forth intrusive thoughts in the bridge, making for an addictive melody. The sheer catchiness of it all should be illegal but it's irresistible!
