Dad – Alligator

Dad is a brand new bedroom pop project that’ll catch your ears in a flash. The twist is that Dad doesn’t exist – she’s a virtual conjuring of the 21st century style and emotion that’s more authentic than most vocalists playing the industry, Spotify playlist chasing game. There’s some serious pop songwriter talent contributing to this project and you can really feel the catchiness of the hooks woven through an honest, organic lens. It’s such an interesting concept from top to bottom, but when you boil it all down, “Alligator” is one of the best songs of the year with no context needed. Dad has captured my full attention and I look forward to hearing what this figment of our collective imagination does next.

I woke up on the right side of bed this Monday morning, so having a song that makes me smile like “Alligator” is perfect timing. The sun is shining, incense is burning, candles are lit, the salt rock lamp is on, coffee is being sipped, tarot cards have been read, reading has been done, a beautiful day is in total motion. It’s a fresh entrance to a busy week ahead, helping me slow down before philosophy seminars and Halloween festivities begin to roll out with a quick pace. Now, back to hitting repeat on “Alligator” again and again.
