Review: "Daphne" - Abigail Fierce
Abigail Fierce should be applauded for her cute and clever new addition to the pop-rock/pop-punk world. "Daphne" is an immersive track many of us can relate to, narrating the tale of having a crush on a stranger. It's an LGBTQ+ love song that depicts Fierce pining after an adorable barista with cat-eye eyeliner and a black beanie at her local coffee shop. Fierce would go to this coffee shop every Tuesday, seeing this barista who never wore a name tag, so the mystery barista soon became "Daphne." Initially, the track tells the story of 2 girls in love, but the bridge later reveals that Fierce has just been dreaming of her local barista the whole time. The fun new song comes in time to be the summer anthem we have playing on repeat.
Abigail Fierce's "Daphne" is packed full of that exciting angst characteristic of the pop-punk and pop-rock genres. The track features face-melting guitar licks, creating a loud and aggressive soundscape. Embodying a nostalgic pop-punk/pop-rock sound, Fierce's edgy vocals deliver the song's charming lyrics. Her voice has a spoken singing quality about it, and the assertive timbre is reminiscent of LP and Avril Lavigne. Drawing inspiration from early 2000's pop-rock, "Daphne" is perfect for any enthusiast of that era and would fit well in a playlist with pop-punk/pop-rock icons like Paramore, Avril Lavigne, and Good Charlotte.
Based in LA, Abigail Fierce is an LGBTQ+ alternative pop-rockstar. She's a talented multi-instrumentalist, playing all the instruments on her tracks (except drums). An impressive singer-songwriter, Fierce loves writing her own songs at 4 a.m. when she's alone. She has several endorsements, including PRS Guitars, Elixir Strings, and Ultimate Ears in-ear monitors.
