You can now preorder Daughter's upcoming vinyl release If You Leave here:
Daughter is vocalist/guitarist Elena Tonra, electric guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella. Together, the trio write dark, ethereal and hauntingly beautiful songs that showcase a group of young musicians experimenting delicately with a rich array of songwriting ideas and yet remain intent on pouring out their soul pure and unadulterated. Described by Mojo Magazine as, “unflinchingly honest & hugely captivating,” Daughter came together in 2010, and have watched their star gently rise, collecting fans one-by-one as their demo tracks started to spread amongst enthusiastic friends and bloggers.
Glassnote Records is excited to announce the release of Daughter’s highly anticipated debut album If You Leave on April 30th, 2013 in North and South America. The album will be released in the UK and Europe on March 18th via 4AD. If You Leave was recorded over a period of months at home and in various spaces across London. Production was overseen by Daughter guitarist Igor Haefeli with additional production from Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Adele) and Jolyon Vaughan Thomas (Maps), and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83) at High Bank Studio and mastered by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios.
Less of a statement of intent, these ten songs are more of a snapshot of a year in Daughter's short life. Lyrically, Elena explores 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.
In April 2010, Daughter self-released their debut EP, His Young Heart. Since it’s release, Daughter has caught the attention of critics and fans alike. Featured as Vogue Magazine’s “Artist of the Week,” they describe, “Daughter masterfully blends fluttering, heart-on-the-sleeve acoustic ballads with brooding, ambient soundcapes..." After seeing support from BBC 6 Music, they praised, "(Elena Tonra) has the most beautiful voice... destined for greatness.”
Glassnote Records released their second EP, The Wild Youth, in March of 2012 and on those two releases alone the band have built a loyal fanbase that continues to grow. After becoming one of the most buzzed about bands at the 2012 SXSW and CMJ Music Festivals, Daughter’s success was punctuated by a hauntingly beautiful and delicate performance on The Late Show with David Letterman, before heading out on their first sold-out North American tour this fall.
Currently preparing to begin a sold-out tour in the UK, Daughter will be announcing North American tour dates soon.
