Daughter - Daughter Announce New Single, 'Human'
Daughter : Daughter Announce New Single, 'Human'
28th March 2013

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.

Following close on the heels of singles ‘Smother’ and ‘Still’, ‘Human’ takes a lighter turn. Production was overseen by Igor with help from Jolyon Thomas. Musically upbeat in comparison to its predecessors, the subject matter is as introspective as ever. The flipside to ‘Human’ is a brand new track, ‘Drift’. Originally recorded during sessions for If You Leave, ‘Drift’ was previously only available on the Japanese version of the album, but is now being made available globally.

Daughter embark on a short four-date UK tour in April and will head on their biggest headline tour to date this Autumn (see right). Elena, Igor and Remi will also be appearing at a number of festivals this summer, including Field Day, T In The Park, End Of The Road, Fuji Rock and Primavera.
