Sometimes referred to as Taiwan's first indie pop group, Bad Daughter's songs incorporate airy vocals, simple keyboard melodies and acoustic guitar, obtaining an effort less shift between Cat Power-esque sad-core and more upbeat power pop. The name Bad Daughter suggests a frustration with being female in a conservative society (despite the fact that they are not an all-girl band having two male male members).
The first time I encountered Bad Daughter was at The Wall complex when some kids hanging out asked me to take a look at the "Tiny Sun" video in the cluttered Mai 68 bookstore that used to be there once upon a time. I was immediately hooked by the dreamy sequence and was even more in awe when I came across the same sounds by chance while wandering around at the 2004 Formoz festival. During that year, I saw Bad daughter perform several more times often with their labelmates Nipples and Peppermint.
Unfortunately, Bad Daughter disbanded in 2006 leaving us with just two full CDs on the White Wabbit label. Singer and songwriter VeraQueen continues to write and play songs and has appeared on several Silent Agreement compilations.
