Neondad - Daddylicious

EP review by KevW


As if the band name and EP title weren't enough, Finnish band Neondad take their paternity-based theme even further, giving their individual names as Hung Dad, Lusty Dad, Feliz Navidad and, ahem, Peter von Baghdad. It all seems to be setting the stage for some "wacky" or "quirky" music, but if you give their new EP 'Daddylicious' a spin you'll find a reasonably orthodox indie/rock sound, albeit one that doesn't take things too seriously or come across as particularly earnest. This is a quartet of accomplished and pretty decent tracks, which although they're unlikely to win any awards, are worthy of a few minutes of your time.

Kicking off with the the likeable if fairly routine 'Drugs' it's clear that they can pen a decent enough tune and execute it with no small amount of deserved confidence. What follows is essentially more of the same, however 'Good Morning, Mr Pink' takes the quality up a notch, and both 'Girl In The Uniform' and 'Create A Silence' are equally competent and slightly charming. There's nothing on this EP that you won't have heard already but that doesn't stop it being, all told, a pretty decent listen and Neondad a name to look out for in the future.
