Moscow Apartment - Better Daughter [EP]
Better Daughter presents an evolution of Moscow Apartment’s sound from acoustic beginnings to the freedom they now enjoy playing live in a full band, which is translated through the EP’s layered arrangements.
2017 marked the release of Moscow Apartment’s acclaimed self-titled debut EP, followed by winning Slaight Music’s It’s Your Shot songwriting contest and its $100,000 grand prize artist development contract in 2018. Fry and Padilla have spent the intervening years touring and developing their skills as producers and writers, receiving guidance from the likes of Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Grammy-winner Chin Injeti.
The duo produced Better Daughter in collaboration with Vance Powell and Guillermo Subauste, who assisted in bringing a poetic and multilayered collection of songs to life. Tackling subjects which range from internalized misogyny to the complicated nature of adolescence, the songs on this EP reflect Moscow Apartment’s development as guitarists, vocalists, and writers whose music transcends limitations.
