*The Following Press Release Was Issued By A Little Bit Louder Music*
After a handful of singles in 2019, The Phoenix Within have returned with another new track on March 13th, titled “Daddy Issues.” The song’s lyrics touch on frontman Omar Feliciano’s personal experiences with this topic, especially in the chorus (“I fear I’ll never really know what it is to trust someone other than myself”). Musically, the track shows a handful of the various elements in The Phoenix Within’s sound, from the acoustic guitars opening the track to that punk influenced chorus with harder hitting instrumentals and raw vocals in the chorus and the guitar solo towards the end that is as catchy as the melodies before it.
