Scream Daisy have come a long way since 2000 when they released their first single, Room 7.
As often happens, maintaining the momentum of success is not easy. Scream Daisy passed through a number of line-up changes slowing the band’s output. Jotham Saliba and Gary Grech, the only members remaining from the original formation, met with Lincoln Spiteri, another founder member, during an awards ceremony in 2005 and decided to join forces one more time and start afresh.
During 2006 Jeremy Micallef and Tim Vella Briffa were recruited and the current formation was complete. The band started song writing and by May 2006 had some 30 odd songs in various stages of completeness. These sessions also served the band to explore and define a more alternative style. Local producer David Vella from Temple studios was contacted and given a demo tape. David liked what he heard and a studio session was booked for November 2006. The band was committed to release a second album.
Meanwhile the band had various live performances during the summer, an opportunity to test the new songs in front of an audience; the response was encouraging. As a result numbers where dropped, others refined and new ones written.
Also during 2006, Scream Daisy released two singles. “Happy Families” and “What They Say”. These where both top 10 hits on major local radio stations and the latter was nominated for the best song award at the Bay Music Awards 2006.
Early in 2007 the band was back at Temple Studios to finalize the album. The project was completed by the end of June 2007.
On the 4th of July 2007, the first single from the new album was released. 'Bees', a fast song by Scream Daisy’s standards, which gave the public a taste of the bands new direction. ‘Bees’ contrasted heavily with their previous pop/rock efforts but showed that, no matter what, Scream Daisy could still write songs with a wide appeal. ‘Bees’ reached top 10 positions on the major local radio stations and even hit the no.1 spot on Bay Radio, the third local band to ever achieve this.
'Pretty' is the second single from the band’s new album. Released on 26th September it exposes the gentle side of the band's new sound. A video for the song was also produced by Ian Schranz of the Beangrowers. This video won the BEST VIDEO AWARD at the Malta Video Awards 2007.
Scream Daisy have also released their eponymous album in November 2007.
On the 16th of January 2008 the band has released their third single taken from this album, Learn to Fight. This song is currently in the TOP 40 charts of the major radio stations in Malta.
