"Neptune's Only Daughter - "Lateral Drift" Review"

"Neptune’s Only Daughter has a quality that reminds me of some of the great indie bands. Not only is it the tone of the singer’s voice or the bass line that reminded me of “Rebellion (Lies)” by Arcade Fire but the way they structure their songs. It’s hard to put your finger on it but there is definitely a surplus of influences that may just have been accumulated over the last ten years. Any way you look at it you have five solid songs that are fun and easy to listen to on Lateral Drift." - The Equal Ground

"Radio 1190 Live Set/Interview"

Four songs played live and an interview on the air of Radio 1190's Local Shakedown program. - Radio 1190


Lateral Drift - 2013 EP



In an era of hyper-stimulation and a catastrophic global future, many musicians look to acoustic roots and folkways in order to resist the crawling world around them. Not so with Neptunes Only Daughter. NOD faces the world, glaring into the future with fascination and jitters. Theirs is an impish grin, standing triumphantly on the smoking rubble of cities and hills with a flag made from their own shirts. Neptunes Only Daughter formed when Evan, David, and Ben were in their early teens, and the feeling of lost boys and youthful curiosity has never been shaken from their music. Their influences span that time-frame: picking up cues from spaceship anime or an abandoned sugar mill out on the Colorado plains as much as from their namesake Pixies or from the rich layering and rhythms of Talking Heads. Working within their disco-industrial arrangements, NODs live shows are playful, danceable, and humorous. Ben rides a metallic wave of guitar, piano, and bold vocals. Evan may as well be a waveless surfer, airbending along a bouncing bass line on his way to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Davids drumming is terse and wild at the same time, like flamenco. Together they form a whirling force that may survive the future after all. You would be best to stick by them.
