Philadelphia’s The Wonder Years have released a new track called Oldest Daughter, which picks up where 2013’s Madelyn left off.
Where Madelyn detailed alcoholism and the “vitriolic” trappings of the east coast winter, Oldest Daughter includes the same unfortunate ending, but the energy of the track differs.
Vocalist, Dan Campbell, shared that the song is about “understanding that you can’t save everyone. There are going to be people you love who will destroy themselves no matter how badly you want them to stop.”
Oldest Daughter was first tracked live at the Foo Fighters’ studio 606 before being finalised at producer Steve Evetts’ studio. An as-yet untitled album is due to follow later on this year.
