Daffodils to flower with Kartel

in Industry by

Teenage popsters Daffodils have signed with UK based artist services company Kartel Music Group.

The announcement coincides with the release of the Auckland four-piece’s fourth single ‘A Leo Underwater’ and follows hot on the heels of their first ever headline show.

Singer Theo Salmon says: “We’re so excited to be getting our music out to more and more people around the world with the support of Kartel. This song is particularly important to us, and we feel very privileged to be working with Kartel on getting the song to a much bigger audience!”

Kartel CEO Charles Kirby-Welsh is looking forward to introducing Daffodils to the global stage. “With so much great music coming out of New Zealand it’s a testament to this young bands potential to say they are one the most exciting we’ve heard from anywhere.”

‘A Leo Underwater’ is the third single Daffodils have released this year and their debut EP is due early in 2019.

The band is the brainchild of keyboardist Jade Bryham and Salmon, with the latter quickly roping in former school bandmates drummer, Isaac Keating (drums) and Louis Graham (bass).

Salmon adds: “Our sound isn’t punk but it does influence our performance ethos. There’s a sense of community – each song is everyone’s song, not just the band’s.”
