Charleston-based band Daddy’s Beemer (comprising lead vocalist/guitarist Brady Sklar, multi-instrumentalist Dan Fetterolf, bassist Wesley Heaton, and newest addition, drummer Payton Kutyla) formed in 2016 at Clemson University, where they soon established their brand of dreamy, buoyant indie rock. Influences from across the pond like Two Door Cinema Club, The Kooks and The Cure mingled with the likes of REM and even Frank Ocean to form a left-field melting pot across their first EPs, Daddy’s Beemer (2017) and Pucker (2018). Meanwhile, they forged their identity on the road, playing over 200 shows since their inception and heading as far afield as New York and SXSW, all while building a rock-solid base in their home state of South Carolina.
While their debut full-length, 2020’s Denmark, saw the band expand their recording capacity and flex their production muscles, they now have their sights set on capturing the electric, spontaneous energy of their live show as they record their upcoming second LP. -Mia Hughes
