Daisy Victoria – Heart Full of Beef


As the inbox fills up on a daily basis with countless new submissions, it’s strange how it’s the little things that determine whether a song gets heard or not. In this case, Daisy Victoria, formerly singer and songwriter of Maglia Rose Group, sent me this lovely email where the bio stated that she, amongst other things, enjoys photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans. Now, as an amateur photographer and believer in all things still and beautiful, that certainly raised my interest. As it turned out, “Heart Full of Beef”, her debut single under own name, is just as leathery and forceful as the works by the German photographer. Driven by animated drums and ample guitars, Victoria offers up a relentless rubber-burning rocker on her first try. There are elements of raw funk and garage-rock, before the track closes on a free-wheeling adrenaline rush of orderly chaos. Howver, it’s a bit unfortunate that her vocals are either buried far into the mix or capped in too much distortion, which more or less makes the lyrics imperceptible. Otherwise, “Heart Full of Beef” is a very accomplished and swinging debut that should be the beginning of a bright future.
