Indie Pop band Daisy the Great have shared “Tough Kid,” the second song from their upcoming EP, which will be released October 6th, 2023. The new track has some deep inspiration in feelings of insecurity and being overwhelmed by life, but seeks to redress that balance and encourage the audience.

The band says:

“Tough Kid” is a really special song to us. We’ve been holding on to this song for a while and as we’re putting it out now, it almost seems like our younger selves are teaching us this lesson all over again. The song is about feeling scared that you’re not able to keep up, like you’re all scrambled up and overwhelmed and ten steps behind everyone else. It’s about wanting to be able to handle everything and not understanding how it seems like everyone else can do it all. The song is a wish to talk yourself out of your insecurities. We hope that it can be a safe spot for anyone feeling that way – we’ve been there and we hope the song can be a reminder to trust your own instincts and believe in yourself and allow yourself space to mess up.

The band’s sophomore album, All You Need Is Me, was supported by a five-week US tour. To continue the touring success and build up to the new EP, the band will embark on a European Tour later this month with Liza Anne in Ljubljana, Slovenia and continue through to the end of September. The headline tour features stops at festivals including Superbloom in Munich and Reeperbahn in Hamburg.
