"I Don't Wanna Fall" is a playful and classic rock themed song by the incredible duo, Daisy The Great. Though the lyrics are about going through a silly fight with the person you love and just wanting to make up, the music itself gives a positive feel to the song. The overall soundscape feels influenced by legends like Queen and Elton John - featuring a strong piano line and prominent electric guitar throughout - but with Daisy The Great's own modern indie-pop twist and their signature captivating harmonies. This song takes you back to a time when all the instruments you heard were real and live instead of electronically produced.
The music video features Daisy The Great and their band in a sequence of clips being themselves, having fun, goofing around and playing live shows. Watching them perform in this video allows you to take in the raw and real type of sound that they have as well as their incredible energy and stage presence. I have no doubt in my mind 'I Don't Wanna Fall' sounds amazing live, especially with the impressive guitar solo and again, those incredibly crafted and iconic harmonies. Daisy The Great radiates a type of realness that a lot of music is missing nowadays, which makes you want to put their music on repeat and maybe go see them live!
Daisy The Great is an indie-pop duo project created by singer-songwriters Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker. The Brooklyn, New York based friends began writing music together in 2016, releasing their first ever EP together in 2018, 'I’ve Got a Few Friends and I Wish They Were Mine'. Their single off of the EP, "The Record Player Song" gained traction on TikTok in 2019, gaining over 5 million streams. Since then they've accrued almost 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and just recently released their second album 'All You Need Is Time' which features "I Don't Wanna Fall" and my personal favorite, "Glitter". Daisy The Great plans on going on their headline tour for this album in the Spring, so get your tickets here!
