"Packs a serious punch, wrapped in a bubblegum glove." The Scotsman
"[Daffodils] resonates so strongly as a piece of our mixed-up, precious culture, it should be our new national flag." Metro New Zealand
This critically acclaimed heartbreaker carves out the bittersweet nuances of one couple’s life to a live mix-tape of New Zealand’s most iconic songs - from Crowded House to Bic Runga, played onstage by a three-piece band. Daffodils is a charming, riotous and quintessentially Kiwi love story, inspired by true events and small-town family secrets.
