tunesday – daffodils


The Kiwi band’s latest track is inspired by the best bits of ‘80s new wave.

New Zealand four-piece Daffodils (aka Isaac Keating, Jade Bryham, Louis Graham and Theo Spike Salmon), started making music together in 2016 after meeting at a 1975 concert. Since then, they have played at festivals, supported international artists including Foals and Orville Peck and released their first EP, Boys, in 2019.

The talented outfit has just dropped a new track – “House Across the Street”. With singer Theo’s moody baritone, poppy guitars and ‘80s new wave influence, the tune is a certified earworm. Theo says he wrote the track to help him understand "how difficult it is to come to terms with people moving on, and being so close to them but so far away at the same time". Pretty relatable, eh?

The band is currently working on its second EP. For the meantime, tune into “House Across the Street” below.
