A combination of vocalist Rachel Dady and songwriter-producer Jesse O'Connor, Dady perfectly encapsulate the new school pop sound with Failing. They have the uncanny ability of being able to write personal songs that place the listener at the moment they were inspired by. Balancing an intimately melancholic narrative with a sharp and forward-thinking production, both sides of this alt-pop powerhouse are on point here.
“Jesse sent this beat when I was visiting family in Minnesota and I remember writing the melody on the dock of our lake house. The production lends itself to these tender, almost guarded verses, but the hook is big and anthemic. “Failing” is about a relationship where I never felt comfortable saying how I felt, and this song is me finally doing that.”
