“I’m Not,” the latest single from the band’s forthcoming debut album Deep Dream, is one such piece. Over fuzzed-out guitars and an insistent rhythm section, it deals with the long-lasting impacts of sexual assault and abuse.

Three years ago, singer and guitarist Jenna Moynihan saw the words “Daddy Issues” written on the wall at a Nashville DIY venue and assumed — with what seems like utterly charming feminist optimism — that it was the name of an all-girl punk group. Sadly, it wasn’t; fortunately, Moynihan chose to recruit some friends to take up the band moniker themselves. The resulting trio — which also includes drummer Emily Maxwell and bassist Jenna Mitchell — makes stormy, grungey pop that can be charming and trenchant in equal measure. Moynihan sings about love, sex and sleazy exes so unwaveringly you can almost feel her direct eye contact. Some of the band’s songs have a disillusioned or ironic tone, but they rarely feel callow; often the resentment feels deeply intimate, as if it’s coming straight from a raw nerve.

From Daddy Issues‘ upcoming full-length vinyl debut Deep Dream, out May 19th on Infinity Cat Recordings.
