Daisy Jones and the Six sing their hearts out; Best-selling novel turned into series


Based on the New-York-Times bestselling novel, Daisy Jones and the Six navigates the story of a fictional 1970s rock band’s climatic rise and fall. The novel has been recently turned into a series, currently exclusively streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

      After a hit single made by Daisy Jones and The Six, singer-songwriter Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) creates an album, Aurora, alongside The Six. The album’s creation leads the band to perform for sold-out stadiums and become a classic success. However, during the band’s peak, conflict breaks out between the musicians for many substantial reasons.

      Sparks begin to fly between characters Daisy and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) as they undergo an ‘enemy to lovers’ trope throughout the events of the series. Their romance is a “problematic” one, leaving fans unsure as to how to feel about the two stars.

      “I like their relationship, but at the same time I also don’t,” shares sophomore Deanna Zipp. “I think they match each other very well, but I don’t like the circumstances as to how they got together,” she adds.

      More romance occurs between pianist Karen Sirko (Suki Waterhouse) and the lead guitarist, Graham Dunne (Will Harrison.) “Graham is such a sweetheart, and I wish we got to see more of him in the show,” shared sophomore Poppy Smith. The sophomore also added that she “loves” Karen.

      Since the series is centered around a band, music that was created by the actors in the show has been released on streaming platforms such as Spotify and Amazon Music. Sources have also confirmed that all actors in the show used their own voices and crafted the music, (which was once only lyrics in the books) as well as acting in the Amazon series.

      Fans have shared their enthusiasm that the once fictional songs have been brought to life. Zipp explains that she “can’t pick a favorite song,” but her top three are “Look At Us Now,” “More Fun To Miss,” and finally, “Let Me Down Easy.” 

     Smith shared that she “loves the album [Aurora],” and that she “swears” she listens to it “daily.” Smith also commented that her favorite thing about the show is the music itself, as well as the outfits and aesthetics in the show.  

      Commonly, characters are seen wearing classic 70s styles, such as bell bottomed pants, midi skirts, maxi dresses, and a lot of vibrant, eye-catching colors.

      Zipp added one last comment, finishing with, “This show is beautiful, down to its core. Everything about it is amazing.”
