Review: "Already Dead" - Daisy Grenade

The iconic due of “Daisy Grenade” is back with their second featured single, “Already Dead” from their upcoming EP “Cult Classic”. This bubble-grunge band serves as the punk revivalist’s name of the 2020’s. Their “manic pixie dream tumblr girl aesthetic” is the epitome of what we have been missing in the world of punk grunge. “Already Dead” is one of the 5 featured “horror themed songs” from the EP­– and no, this doesn’t mean songs about death, but instead, the terrors of love. This track is all about the messiness of post relationships and how you deal with that aftermath.

Listen to "Already Dead" here:

Besides the fact that I just loved everything about this single, “Already Dead” also happens to be brilliantly written to invoke just the right amount of nostalgia to make it even more appealing to fans. When hearing this song for the first time, I was immediately transported back into my Fall Out Boy and Paramore obsessed phase. I couldn’t help but think “Hell yeah, this is the kind of stuff we’ve been missing!” The writing is obviously in the classical style of grunge, yet there’s this new feel of the genre being taken over by these badass, glitter lip-glossed girls. Daisy Grenade has taken a classic and turned into a modern sensation!

Daisy Grenade is made up of the infamous duo, Dani Nigro and Keaton Whittaker. While from opposite sides of America, Dani and Keaton have remarkably similar stories and just happened to cross paths to make up the famous duo we have today. Both ladies grew up heavily influenced by music and both became passionate about musical theater, which seems to be a drastically different change in pace from the genre of music they perform now. Their lives crossed paths fatefully through a production of American Idiot that was shut down due to Covid– and thus, a musical union was born. The girls took their idea of pop-punk music, ran with it and never looked back. Daisy Grenade’s new EP, which has had the help of emo prince Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, will be released in the upcoming months. Personally, I cannot wait to hear more from this duo! Keep all eye on Daisy Grenade for more incredible music!
