Dark Light

All the way from Galway on the West Coast of Ireland, here’s a long-overdue shout out to NewDad. A four-piece alternartive-rock outfit that packs a punch with a 90s tinged sound reminiscent of the good ol’ teen filled drama of my earlier days. Youth encapsulated in this brightly colored lunch box named “Blue”. The track was released in September last year, however unbeknown to yours truly Newdad bleeped its way onto our radar thanks to the band climbing the humanhuman charts.

Listen to “Blue” by NewDad:

They’ve also made quite the splash live on the Eurosonic Livestream 2021 with a bunch a songs you can now get from their BandCamp page.

With plenty of guitars to indulge in and a witty, well-penned set of lyrics to sing along to, NewDad have proven they have what it takes to make things move fast in their direction over the coming months. Once the pandemic is behind us, they’ll tour and make people bop at live venues. Absolutely no doubts about that. In the meantime stream/buy their music from all available DSPs and follow their socials (see below).

Lyrics:

While you took your time, 
You wasted mine 
I said “I wanted you” 
You said you felt too blue 
And while you were making up your mind 
I lost mine 

We don’t like the same things 
I want to dance and you just want to drink 
I want to talk and you just want to sit alone and think 
About how you hate it here 
How you wish you could disappear 
How you’re jealous of everyone ‘cause they have fun 

While you took your time, 
You wasted mine 
I said “I wanted you” 
You said you felt too blue 
And while you were making up your mind 
I lost mine 

I tell you every day 
I don’t want things to stay the same 
I said I’ll meet you outside 
I want to talk but you just want to fight 
I said why won’t you forget 
You never even want to talk about it 
We’re still stuck in the same place 
And you only want more space 

While you took your time, 
You wasted mine 
I said “I wanted you” 
You said you felt too blue 
And while you were making up your mind 
I lost mine 

While you took your time, 
You wasted mine 
I said “I wanted you” 
You said you felt too blue 
And while you were making up your mind 
I lost mine
