By titling their 2018 fourth full-length and debut for Ipecac Records, You Won’t Get What You Want, Daughters send a crystal clear message. The quartet—Alexis Marshall [vocals], Nick Sadler [guitar], Jon Syverson [drums], and Sam Walker [bass]— follow the same internal compass that guided them to blur the lines of fickle heavy music sub-genres in the first place and quietly ignite a cult fervor typically reserved for grindhouse phenomena.
In fact, the best way to describe the philosophy and the sound of the quartet is simply: rock ‘n’ roll.
"I've always felt we decide what a Daughters record is,” Alexis states. “It's not a sound or an aesthetic. Daughters is the name of our group and, we will do whatever we want to do with it.”
“We’ve changed our sound from record to record since the beginning,” says Nick. “We always had a very broad interest and taste in music across the spectrum. We are a rock band at heart, expect not to expect anything.”
There was a time expecting another Daughters record might’ve been met with disappointment. On the heels of their 2010 self-titled offering, the members engaged an indefinite hiatus. One fated dinner and two sold out hometown shows in Providence in 2013 saw them pick up where they had left off. Throughout the next four years the band recorded, eventually culling down a Dropbox of 150 ideas to the ten comprising You Won’t Get What You Want. In the end, if you want a Daughters record, you’ll get it here.
