Stream: Big Daisy – Poinsettia


Belfast quartet Big Daisy have unveiled a new festive single titled ‘Poinsettia’.

Capping off a busy year emerging as one of the island’s first indie-pop propositions, it is – true to form – a wonderfully lo-fi gem from the four-piece, honing in on the true spirit of the season.

“‘Poinsettia’ is a Christmas love song,” said the band.” The main lyric “Christmas without you baby, I would be so blue” is sang with heart at the thought of being without your true love at Christmas time.”

Stream the song – which was recorded in the attic of Big Daisy’s home by the band’s drummer Dan O’Rawe – below.
