The next single to be taken from Daughter’s debut album If You Leave is ‘Human’.
Daughter is the London-based trio consisting of Elena Tonra (vocals, guitar), Swiss-born Igor Haefeli (guitar) and French native Remi Aguilella (drums). Starting life in 2010, Daughter released two EPs His Young Heart (April 2011) and The Wild Youth (late-2011) before signing to 4AD in 2012. In their short career the young trio have managed to gain a loyal following. With numerous sold-out shows under their belts (they recently headlined the 1,300-capacity Hackney Empire in London) and a steadily growing fanbase, it’s no real surprise that their debut long-player If You Leave entered the Top 20 in the UK album charts in its first week of release.
This week sees the release of Daughter’s debut album If You Leave through 4AD.
Less of a statement of intent, these ten songs are more of a snapshot of a year in Daughter's short life. Lyrically, Elena plumb the depths of her psyche to reveal her innermost thoughts, finding comfort in expounding those internal demons. If You Leave is a bold move for an act still in its infancy, displaying a maturity that belies their youth.
If You Leave is available on CD, LP and digital download.
The London-based trio of Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella will follow their late-April shows and festival appearances over the summer with an eleven date run in October, culminating at London's 2,000-capacity Shepherds Bush Empire. Tickets for the October tour will go on general sale on Monday 11th March at 9am. A fan pre-sale begins on Friday 8th March at 9am (check www.ohdaughter.com for more details).
This afternoon, Daughter unveiled their first official video for new song, ‘Still’.
Taken from the London-based trio’s debut album, If You Leave (out March 18th through 4AD, April 30th in N. America with Glassnote), ‘Still’ can be watched below or here.
Taking cues from the song’s themes, the video throws a spotlight on a young couple, whose fragile relationship has grown toxic and broken down irrevocably.
Currently in the midst of a sold-out UK and Ireland tour, Daughter have revealed details of a 12-date European tour and additional British shows in April.
