Badflower: “Daddy” (2019)

Mumble rap, EDM, bro country…it’s a depressing popular music landscape these days for anyone who still prefers music to say something.

Fortunately the genre of rock still has its bright spots here and there, though it may be a bit ironic to use the term for subject matter this dark.

“Daddy”, from Badflower’s 2019 debut Ok, I’m Sick, is an unflinching and impactful vignette of familial abuse. The verses take you to a pretty messed up place. But the chorus has a cathartic clout.
