Toothbrush Tree is an edgy girl band with a passion for payback. With track names like, “You’re my number one DB” and “You’ve been played – playa” to “I don’t get jealous” and “Take your double standards and shove em” you experience firsthand how these girls play the game. Toothbrush Tree takes bitter lyrics and mixes them with booty shakin’ bass lines and groovin’ tempos so that sass and scorn never sounded better! Before you know it you’re singing along to “I hate you. Yes, yes I do. You say wha? wha? I don’t care. JustbcuzIkissedya doesn’t mean Iwannaknowya.”
- Vogue Magazine called it “Empowering album for any woman who has ever felt neglected or scorned.”
- Women’s Health raved, “Best new workout album for the summer. Getting in shape as revenge against your ex never felt so good.”
It started while lead singer Daisy was living abroad in Sydney. “I was fed up with the double standard. I like to kiss boys. I like to date. I like to play. But this doesn’t mean I fall in love with every guy I crush on. This album was a way for me to explore the nature of double standards and men whose egos can barely fit into an auditorium.”
“The name ‘Toothbrush Tree’ came from the idea of always needing a spare toothbrush. If you know what I mean.” [Daisy winks] “Blindness of Strangers” refers to the idea that you don’t KNOW unless you KNOW. Judging just isn’t cool.”
In a recent interview with RollingStone Daisy stated, “I hope this album reaches out to girls who are feeling neglected and misunderstood. I want this to reach out to the women who are fed up with men thinking they’re in love with them. And I want to reach out to the women who have been judged according to a double standard. Stand up! No more! Be empowered.”
Only time will tell, but this reporter predicts Daisy’s gusto and attitude will launch her straight into multi-platinum status.
HAHAHAHAHA! Ok – there you have it. Sure sounds like I am a bit bitter eh? Hmm. Well it WAS just a writing prompt. Or was it? I guess only YOU can decide how much of the content REALLY has to do with my life right now (that is if any of it did.)
