Originally from Northern Virginia, Rachel Dady and producer Jesse O’Connor started out rather unexpectedly, as ‘frenemies’ in high school but soon struck up a close musical bond while they were both living in New York City. Since then they have released five singles together. Returning after a brief musical break, alt-pop duo Dady are back with a bang in the form of the effortlessly dreamy, indie-pop single ‘Dark Mode’.
The pair are the epitome of how music brings people together and exist now as a match made in musical heaven, with ‘Dark Mode’ being another shining example to add to the collection. The chemistry and connection between both integral halves remains evident as Rachel’s sweet, perfectly placed, silk-like pop vocals glide over the expertly produced track, courtesy of the talented Jesse.
“Dark Mode was written and recorded (almost) all in one day during the summer of 2020. With this release, we decided to explore warmer, more organic instrument sounds, a bit of a departure from our early production and beat-heavy tracks. Chalk it up to turning 30 (or all of the Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mommy we listened to over the course of the pandemic), but we wanted to take our foot off the gas with Dark Mode. Both vocally and production-wise, it’s an exploration of how less can be more.” – Dady
