Composed of singer-songwriter Rachel Dady and songwriter/producer Julien Wicks, Dady is the project of two one-time "frenemies." Originally hailing from Northern Virginia, the pair has relocated to New York City where they are churning out little pop gems like their new single, 'Friends.'

The song's sonics change dramatically over the course of the track's three minute runtime. Beginning as a light-hearted synth number, offering the audio equivalent of pastel colors, an ominous drum machine kicks in and Dady's vocal performance becomes increasingly raw.

'Friends' is just a taste of what Dady can do, but it is clear the duo has the potential to write towering pop epics that offer compelling mediations on real-life problems. It may sound sugary at first, but something far more interesting is going on just beneath the surface. You can't ask for much more than that.
