3. LITTLE GUY

The one that started it all! This stripped down folky mix of real piano, mandolin, xylophone, and horns over a heartfelt birthday missive is what set the DADBOD adventure in motion, and has been called 'a go$$amn Disney ode to modern fatherhood'.

5. PANCAKE

Sweet treats...and even sweeter beats! Inspired by everyday 'island life' during lockdown in Southeast Asia + a dollop of auto-tuned syrup and you get 2.5min of the best breakfast around: All you need is love and a little bit of PANCAKE!

6. ONE and ONLY

Conceived as a third 'birthday jam', O&O quickly evolved for DADBOD into a proud homage to 80s pop and prog. Warm synths, processed vocals, and driving drums make the Genesis and Peter Gabriel influences shine like the sun in his eyes.

7. RAIMISAURUS

Beastie Boys and Wu Tang battle in Jurassic Park, yo — His effects complex, He will feast on false respects, watch Him hunt down these clowns and scream out Who's Next? All you quitters can't be bitter when you watchin' Him flex. He needs a BAD babysitter...or a nanny T-REX!

8. MISTER, MISTER

The lovechild of a 60s French film and a gypsy wedding, the song starts in mock melancholy but soars into fatherly celebration! Buoyed by gorgeous accordion, fiddle, horns, and clarinet, Mister, Mister is inspired in part by The Decemberists' A CAUTIONARY SONG.
