Shangri-Lass - "Father's Daughter"

Shangri-Lass, the new project from Sheffield's Rose Love (bassist of Sister Wives), has a new single out. "Father's Daughter" is a brooding synth pop song that owes it's sound to 60's girl groups as much as 80's synth music. What makes this such an interesting song is that it's dark and foreboding, but it's also a pop song designed to make you groove. It stops just shy of being goth, but just barely. It feels strange to call a song both brooding and fun, but that's what "Father's Daughter" is. The song almost revels in how brooding it is, which is why you're going to love it.

Rose Love says of her new song:

"The song is a mess of ideas from a messy brain: depression, trying to get through a bad trip, how religious brainwashing never leaves you and then relating to my dad through all of those shared experiences."

You can watch the video for "Father's Daughter" below. Over & Over is due out April 28 on Redundant Span Records, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Shangri-Lass, check out the artist on Instagram and Twitter.
