Daughters’ New Song is “The Reason They Hate Me”


Get out your pitchforks — I’ve never listened to Daughters until now. Why? I’m an uncultured swine, apparently. But don’t worry, I’m a fan after hearing their newest song, “The Reason They Hate Me.”

“The Reason They Hate Me” is pretty danceable… if you’re a weirdo. It has some industrial Nine Inch Nails vibes that’ll keep both the punks and the goth kids happy at your next rager (bonus points if there’s blank stares and synchronized can’t-look-too-excited head bopping). In summary, I really dig it, and it’s likely you will, too. Listen below.

I’m just speculating here (see this post’s first paragraph), but after browsing through their catalogue a bit it seems like Daughters are deviating away from their avant-garde noisy grind sound towards something that’s a little more. . . structured? Their previous single, “Satan In The Wait”, is nearly as long as the entirety of their 2003 album Canada Songs, so make of that what you will. Guitarist Nick Sadler commented on the upcoming album: “You Won’t Get What You Want is a decided effort to reference both my admiration for and my influence from film composition and other minimalist music, along with a few moments of self-reference“

You Won’t Get What You Want is coming your way October 26th via Ipecac Recordings. You can go here for all your pre-ordering needs, and if you want a vinyl, better hurry up, cuz there’s only 114 left as of this writing. If you’re lucky enough to live near a major city, you also might be able to catch Daughters on tour this fall; check out those dates under the video.
