My ears are saying yes! to Daphne Gale’s new track, ‘Thanks, Apollo’. The songs’ lyrics take inspiration from greek mythology, using the story of Apollo and his persistent pursuit of Daphne as a shrouded metaphor for misogyny in the workplace. With sounds of Elliott Smith, Adrianne Lenker, Radiohead, “Thanks, Apollo” toggles between eerie, airy acoustic and indie rock angst. The contrast between these two sonic worlds reflects the frustration many women often feel forced to quell while trying to evade unwarranted attention.
