An interview kevinduquette did.

Much admiration for these dudes — a record label that was started and continues to thrive for all the right reasons.

"Thanks for giving us a platform to share these dad-rific tunes, Spotify!"

The cool thing about music is that it is a universal language that has the power to connect families, no matter how different those family members may be at their core. In the end, it allows us to love, create long-lasting bonds, and most importantly, have fun.

Wise words from the folks at Father/Daughter Records

Tough Love

Cocktails

CocktailsTough Love

I’m sure I’m not the only one who thought that Winter overstayed its welcome these last few months, and now that things are finally starting to heat up, it seems like the tunes are following suit.

With a twinkling and infectious power pop sound in tow, San Francisco’s Cocktails are full of fun and fueled by good vibes and it shows in their music. Their latest Father/ Daughter Records release, Adult Life, marks the band’s first full length album and judging from the initial impressions of its first single, “Tough Love”, Cocktails are looking to deliver something cool and refreshing with this upcoming release. Although “Tough Love” sounds like it easily could’ve came out of a jukebox during an episode of Happy Days, it still casually basks in the rays of modern day indie as well, and that’s what makes it endlessly charming. 

Adult Life is set to drop on June 17th via Father/ Daughter and you can expect to see it make an appearance on vinyl in the shade of virgin black or creamsicle haze.

Cocktails new long player out June 17th!

Hear ye, hear ye, it is my extreme pleasure to introduce Adult Life, the debut full-length from San Francisco’s Cocktails! Recorded with Rob Good of Warm Soda at his Fuzz City studio in Oakland, CA, Adult Life recalls music at its most carefree while referencing the dreaded tragedy of adulthood. Make sure to snag one of the 100 limited Creamsicle Haze 12”s before they disappear!
