Castaway

Guided by the storytelling outsider, the fellow walker meets some real life characters like pushers, lowlifes, homeless and of course High street Jesus who’s carrying a huge cross in the middle of the busy streets where passers-by rush away from the inner city back to safe of the suburbs. This upbeat ska influenced punk rock song takes a listener for a walk through the streets of the concrete jungle.

Let’s Have a Peaceful Christmas

Daggerplay - Let's Have a Peaceful Christmas - Cover - Web

We wanted to make our own Christmas season song for the music listeners around the world as we do believe this kind of positive uplifting piece of music is what many people do need right now. One gray November morning we raised up holiday season feeling in our friend’s studio here in Helsinki, Finland and recorded this 1970´s rock inspired melodic foot-stomper. With the song we would like to wish everyone strength to carry on through these not so bright times and we hope this´ll bring Christmas feeling to music fans around the world. Peace.

Talkbaby

Talkbaby

We are currently working on brand new songs and we are planning to start recordings in couple weeks. But before releasing anything new we felt like we first wanted to let this one out. So here it is, Talkbaby, a song from our first demo which we finally re-recorded in Eastsound Studios at the Subterranean Reality studio sessions in 2016. And yes, of course we added the original demo from 2012 as a B-side. Please enjoy!
