DAUGHTER OF DAWN – “SCRUTINY UNDER THE BLINDING LIGHT”

Daughter of Dawn is the solo project of Twin Cities artist Emma Goldman Grey – a Trans artist whose musical output sits in the middle of a venn diagram of various influences and traditions. Fans of Jesu and Massive Attack will find a kindred spirit in the aching, nocturnal delivery of trip-hop beats with an overlay of moody post-rock that rides just below the line of breaking into a cathartic climax. This dark and brooding work explores ” inherent selfishness of choosing to stay blind to the injustices that marginalized people face every day. It is about choosing to ignore those injustices because your privilege allows you to ignore them, and it’s easier to turn a blind eye and bury your head in the sand.” Stunning and heavy work.
