ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Margaret's Daughter is well known as a folk-rock group, but Ami and Etienne have always had very diverse tastes in the music they listen to. They always incorporate some of this into their music, but have thus far stayed relatively close to their folk-rock roots.

"Dogtertjie met die blou oë" ("Little girl with the blue eyes") is a little different than anything they've released before. The original song featured on their very first demo, but was never released. They have since remixed it into something that resembles EDM, while still featuring a lot of the Margaret's Daughter trademarks - a catchy melody, tight harmonies, foot-tapping rhythms and meaningful lyrics.

The "little girl" in the song is overwhelmed and discouraged by the state of the world. She feels powerless and is ready to give up. The song encourages her to stand up for herself and take control of her life. It is a universal theme that can apply to anyone feeling 'down' and the upbeat music should cheer anyone up, whether they understand the Afrikaans lyrics or not.

_______________


Margaret's Daughter is bekend as 'n folk-rock groep, maar Ami en Etienne het nog altyd baie diverse smaak in die musiek wat hul self na luister. Hul inkorporeer altyd 'n bietjie van dit in hulle musiek, maar het tot dusver naby gebly aan hul fok-rock klank.

"Dogtertjie met die blou oë" is 'n bietjie anders as enigiets wat Margaret's Daughter tot dusver uitgereik het. Die oorspronlike snit was op hul heel eerste demo, maar is nooit vrygestel nie. Hul het sedertdien die snit heeltemal ge-remix tot iets wat herinner aan elektroniese dans musiek, maar tog getrou bly aan die kenmerkende saam-sing melodieë, aangrypende harmonieë, voetstamp ritmes en betekenisvolle lirieke wat Margaret's Daughter bekend voor is.

Die dogtertjie in die liedjie voel oorweldig en is gedemotiveerd deur die toestand van die wêreld. Die liedjie motiveer haar om op te staan vir haarself en beheer te neem van haar lewe. Die tema is universeel en die energieke musiek sal enigeen wat "af" voel, opbeur, of hul nou Afrikaans verstaan of nie.
