The main character in Doll Skin's new music video for "Daughter" could be any of us: She rocks out a Slayer T-shirt and carries Green Day and My Chemical Romance CDs around in her backpack.
The track, off the band's latest album Manic Pixie Dream Girl, is an important one for the Arizona group—singer Sydney Dolezal, guitarist Alex Snowden, bassist Nicole Rich and drummer Meghan Herring. "An interesting aspect of this song is that it has a different meaning to each of us," explains Herring. "The video showcases one of the interpretations for it, which is a toxic relationship between parent and daughter."
"Many of our fans and peers will be able to relate to the lyrics, with the struggles of youth and growing up in today’s society," Herring adds.

"Daughter" is the second single from the band's sophomore full-length released in June. They had previously released a music video for "Puncha Nazi" that featured live shots of the band.
