LA-based musician Hunter Daily unveils a stunning new collaboration that features her very own sister Tyson, called ‘Age of Depression’.
Released alongside Hunter’s much-anticipated debut EP ‘Die in LA’ (out now), the song showcases a beautifully melodic indie-pop production that is both emotive and charming in tone. Elaborating further on the track’s creation, Hunter says:
“‘Age of Depression’ is a song I wrote with my sister in the middle of the pandemic. It was pouring rain and freezing out, and we felt like the world was ending… it was a really tough time for us both. We had recorded a bunch of songs over the course of that year, and since then, we have both gone our separate ways in our careers. This is the only song that will come out with my sister and I singing together, but because this song is really special to us and helped us see the light in a really dark time, we decided to put the song out in dedication to that time and to help give hope to those that need it… the best is yet to come!”
Hunter’s momentum has been on a steady rise in recent months. With more than a million cumulative streams to date, and support from heavyweight tastemakers like Fashionably Early and Lefuturewave, this is one artist to keep on your radars.
Upon pressing play to Hunter Daily’s ‘Die In LA’, you might be surprised (and impressed) to learn that this is only the artist’s debut.
A truly outstanding introduction to a promising and talented newcomer, the song serves as a masterclass in melancholic pop. Executive produced by none other than Jenna Andrews herself, the track encompasses Daily’s feelings about living in Los Angeles:
“‘Die In LA’ is about being from LA and never feeling like I can leave or see other places because of the industry I’ve chosen. It’s juxtaposition of hating LA and the scene and not feeling like I fit in, but its also where I come from; I love LA just the same. I don’t want it to be the only thing I ever experienced at the end of the day. Everyone else gets to make that leap to follow their dreams and come here to LA or wherever to follow their dreams, but when you’re from here and in this industry, you’re forced to stay put. This song is about my longing to see more of the world and escape some of the monotony that is LA. This song was written as a kind of love/hate letter to LA because it has been my home my whole life.The essence of the city is such a part of me and I wanted the video to capture that, and I think it does.”
Fans can look forward to two further singles from Daily, both of which will be released before the end of the year.
