Brisbane four-piece band play dark pop rock
I first came across Daisie May last year as part of the Brisbane Festival free live music program, and I caught another of their gigs at The Hideaway recently.

Daisie May are a a Brisbane-based four-piece who call themselves dark pop rock and are described as "post-feminist heart-on-sleeve lyrics with indie rock and punk energy" by Time Off Magazine. They are fronted by Pauline Maudy (also of Mzaza) on vocals, with Matt Ward on guitar, Jay Kleinschmidt on bass and Jay Richmond on drums. With an EP in the final stages, they worked their way through new and old songs alike.

Their set opened with the track Money, a view on the evils of consumerism, and included other songs such as Robot Love, Kiss My Lips, and When It All Goes Down, which had a punk feel, accompanied by head-banging from the long-haired bass player. I noticed that someone mentioned that they were "not as sugary as the name suggests". Towards the end of the set they played Generation Unsatisfied, which is a track off the upcoming EP, and closed with a song, its title still in the early phases, which I'd heard at a set in September last year. According to the band, I was the only one in the room that had heard it before.
