Los Angeles singer-songwriter Raye Robinson, is exciting us with not only her debut single but the first single off her upcoming debut EP entitled Crushes & Love Songs. "Daisies" speaks of utter confusion and sadness in regards to a relationship. However, despite it’s sombre narrative, the artist delivers an upbeat and intoxicating anthem, sending a surge of sugary goodness through your body.
Robinson shares, "I ended things with a guy that I was seeing because I was afraid to get into something serious. After we stopped seeing each other, though, I really missed the connection we had, and I couldn't stop wondering 'Does he miss me too? Does he hate me now? Did I make the right decision?'"
The track starts off with short piano stabs with evocative lyrics introducing the track in a floral tenderness. The chorus comes in, in a blossoming bloom of power with a mighty, gritty bass that resonates throughout the bassy piano. Containing a charming charisma and energy that rumbles throughout, Robinson packs a punch of emotion. "Daisies" has an old-school Lily Allen-esque bounce to it and its minimalist feel keeps the song raw yet polished.
Robinson's debut EP Crushes & Love Songs is set to release later this year. Until then, "Daisies" is the perfect track to listen to if you need a little extra spring in your step and some dewy, zesty fun.
