Rising indie folk musician Daffo (Gabi Gamberg) has shared their dreamy new single ‘Poor Madeline.’

Rising Philadelphian Daffo has released their latest single, ‘Poor Madeline.’ On it, they craft a magnetic sonic experience, blending elements of folk and indie-rock to create a captivating, somewhat dreamy quality likely to resonate deep within the listener. Ironically, the song’s melancholic themes of solitude and depression envelop it in a comforting embrace.

Here’s Daffo discussing the song:

“‘Poor Madeline’ is about the loss of the feeling of home. I wrote it when I was 17, my parents sold my childhood home and I went off to boarding school. I ended up moving 6 times in the span of 9 months. I had nowhere to keep my things, because I never really had my own room, so I kept giving them away and leaving them at various friends’ and family members’ houses. When I wrote the song I kept thinking about the “Madeline” children books by Ludwig Bemelmans, where Madeline is at boarding school in Paris and gets appendicitis. At the time I was having these very intense stomach problems and panic attacks, and I kept thinking I had appendicitis, so I thought her name would be fitting for the song. Anyway, I was a depressed teenager, still technically am, but now at least I find home within myself wherever I am.”

‘Poor Madeline’ is out now. To keep up to date with Daffo, check out their Instagram below.
