The UK seems to have something in the water as they continue to create magnificent musicians and the group Daughter is no different. Lead by the vocals of Elena Tonra, the band creates an atmospheric playground for your mind to roam through while listening. Enchanting from start to finish, the group can be labeled as an indie folk band, but Daughter creates a sound of its own that is distinct.
Elena began Daughter as a solo project and now has added a guitarist, Igor Haefeli and drummer, Remi Aguilella. After releasing 3 EPs in 2010 and 2011, the band was signed by 4AD, a UK label, and recently released their first full-length album, ‘If You Leave’ in early March, and April for those in North America.
Daughter has released EPs in North America that you can pick up right now. The Wild Youth and His Young Heart both demonstrate deep, heartfelt lyrics with simplistic melodies that haunt your eardrums. With lines such as, “and if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one, ‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone,” it’s no wonder the tissue box might need to be near.
Daughter saw its North American success with their song, Youth, off of The Wild Youth EP, which led to the group’s first TV appearance on the popular late night show with David Letterman.
