Breakout star Zoe Wees has released “Daddy’s Eyes,” a song brimming with the earnest, heartfelt and sometimes heartbreaking lyricism that have won her acclaim. The 20-year-old wrote the song about her absent father – and she wrote it for those who grew up in similar circumstances. (According to The U.S. Census Bureau, 25% of children live without a father in the home.) Listen to “Daddy’s Eyes” HERE. View the official video HERE.
Zoe Wees explains, "My father was never there for my mother and me. I've met him once in my life and I realized that my eyes look exactly like his. I don't wanna cry these tears with my Daddy's Eyes. I don't need you, Dad!"
She recorded the single with producers Patrick Pyke Salmy and Ricardo Muñoz, who helmed Wees’ debut EP, Golden Wings, which included the RIAA Gold-certified, Top 20 Pop radio hit “Control,” and Nicolas Rebscher.
“Daddy’s Eyes” is the follow-up to “Third Wheel,” which was recently remixed byJACK-O. Listen to the original and the remix HERE. EUPHORIA. said, “In the good old pop/punk fashion, the effervescent new track ‘Third Wheel’ has all the teenage angst of hitting a certain wall in a relationship balanced with really witty songwriting that shows the emotional maturity of the up-and-comer…soaring guitars and tight drum lines create a very delineated contrast with Wees’ unbelievably powerful voice…” View the official video for “Third Wheel”HERE.
