PAPER DAISIES

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM NOTTINGHAM BAND PAPER DAISIES

Nottingham is about to get a seismic shake-up with the arrival of Paper Daisies and their latest single, “Take What You Need.” Bursting onto the scene with all the subtlety of a wrecking ball.

From the opening bars, “Take What You Need” announces itself with unapologetic swagger and ferocity. The rumble of heavy bass sets the stage, driving the song forward with relentless intensity.

Lyrically, “Take What You Need” pulls no punches, delivering a message of empowerment and defiance in the face of adversity. It’s a rallying cry for anyone who’s ever felt overlooked or underestimated, a reminder that sometimes the best revenge is simply living your truth and taking what you deserve.

Musically, Paper Daisies draw inspiration from the raw energy of 90s grunge and the visceral power of modern post-hardcore, creating a sound that is as nostalgic as it is forward-thinking. The guitars snarl and howl with a ferocity that would make Kurt Cobain proud, while the rhythm section lays down a foundation so solid you can practically feel it in your bones.

However, for all its bombast and bravado, “Take What You Need” occasionally veers dangerously close to the edge of overindulgence. There are moments where the sheer volume and intensity threaten to overwhelm the song’s finer nuances, leaving little room for subtlety or restraint. A more measured approach to dynamics could help to balance out the song’s relentless energy, allowing its inherent power to shine through without drowning out the finer details.

With its anthemic chorus and electrifying energy, Paper Daisies continue to carve out their place in the music scene. One thing’s for sure, though – Nottingham’s musical future has a new name. So, crank up the volume, throw caution to the wind, and let the infectious energy of Paper Daisies’ “Take What You Need” grind you through your day.
