Striking London trio Daughter arose from the sore-hearted works of the enchanting Elena Tonra. Having released their debut album ‘If You Leave’ (4AD/Glassnote) earlier this year, they even received an AIM award for their excellence, embarking now on an eleven-date UK tour – commencing October 16th.
Daughter are one of those rare bands that manage to pull hard on your heart-strings, leaving you fixated with sorrowful tales we all know well; lost love, jealousy and heartbreak. Elena tells these stories in such a way that audiences can’t help but relate and feel a part of something bigger. Their minimalistic approach, simple, delay-laden guitars and careful but steady drumbeats form the perfect bed for Elena’s beautiful projections or whispering, angelic sighs.
If you were lucky enough to secure a ticket to Daughters sell-out show over at Komedia in Bath (October 24th), prepare to be captivated and swept away.
