Started by high school friends in 2008, Problem Daughter plays some of the best blue-collar, punk-rock grit and misery juxtaposed with catchy pop-punk melodies you’ll ever hear. Not regulated to a mere two chords and screaming, the quartet take everything great about punk and pack it into songs varied in structure and melodies that never grow redundant.
Problem Daughter’s music smells like a sweaty basement show, tastes like cheap beer on a lamp-lit porch and feels like not wanting to go home at the end of the night.
