“There's plenty of pull-no-punches honesty in ‘Daddy's Mud’” (The Boot) – Dalton Domino Releases Video For Devastating New Single

New album Songs from the Exile is out August 23rd on Lightning Rod Records
June 20, 2019 – Dalton Domino is one of the best young songwriters out there, and his devastating new single “Daddy’s Mud” (and its powerful accompanying video) is a great example of why. The song, a standout from Domino’s upcoming album Songs from the Exile (out August 23rd on Lightning Rod Records), covers a range of emotional territories - broken homes; young parents doing the best they can under the tremendous weight of responsibility; resentment that grows from the strife family break ups can cause - but ultimately the most cutting lyrics are the one's Domino sings about himself. And the simple yet moving video brings Domino's barbed, self-aware lyrics into greater focus.
At the end of the song though, there’s introspection, hope and acceptance. As Domino tells The Boot, “’Daddy’s Mud’ is about coming to terms with the parts of yourself that you cannot change. It’s okay to be you."
Written during a period of closeted addiction and released during the clear-eyed clarity of Domino's sobriety, Songs from the Exile mixes hope with heartache, melody with melancholy. It's an album about the damage we sometimes inflict upon ourselves, with 13 clutter-free country songs that were recorded during a series of live takes. It’s a masterful album that finds Domino harnessing his considerable talent as a songwriter and justifying outlets like Rolling Stone Country and The Boot tagging him as an artist to watch.
Domino will be announcing a slew of tour dates in support of Songs from the Exile soon.
