Warning: Things are about to get a little emotional. You have been warned.
Whether it’s from your third cousin, your great-great-aunt or even your grandfather, like it or not, most families unfortunately have some sort of darkness attached to them. Now of course, all households are different but at the end of the day, like Corusco’s eye-opening new single “Daughter,” that darkness may eventually affect you in more ways than one.
“My grandpa was in the Navy when he was younger - he was stationed on a submarine during the Korean War,” explains vocalist Aaron Gonzalez. “By the time he had a family, he had adopted a pretty awful case of alcoholism. My grandmother saw the ugliest sides of emotional abuse and she eventually ended up raising my mom and aunt by herself.”
“The rest of his life he lived in different states and had marriages with a handful of other women,” Gonzalez adds. “This song is my mother (the daughter), speaking to my grandpa (the stranger), at different points in their relationship, including after his death. I sometimes worry that I’ve inherited some of his traits, and this song is part of me reminding myself to do better.”
