Characterized by energetic synthesizer-guitar dialogue driven by prominent rhythms, Neptune's Only Daughter has established a unique balance of new wave, indie, and dance rock. However, their contemporary style is derived from prolific musicians throughout history; melodies inspired by the likes of Joy Division, Pixies, Pavement, and Sonic Youth lend themselves to the austere, yet maintain a catchy earnesty that animates each song. Solid, surprising beats weave symbiotically with driving and memorable bass lines to comprise the band's distinctive rhythm section, influenced by such artists as Radiohead, The Africa 70, LCD Soundsystem, and The Clash. The trio's tight instrumentation blends into lush harmonies underpinned by distinguished grooves.
Qualms of insignificance and modern dystopia are reflected in the songwriting and lyrics of Neptune's Only Daughter, responding to the myriad of issues that define and threaten contemporary life. Articulate and experimental, the band matches its dedication with pragmatism and humor. Neptune's Only Daughter strives to express their tunes without losing sight of the simple pleasures of a good song and a happy audience.
