Daughter – Not to Disappear
- David Pollock
- 1 December 2015
Second album from indie-folk trio
Swooning, sensual and ever so serious is how Swiss-French-North Londoner trio Daughter started out, and it’s certainly how they mean to go on, judging by this earnest but enjoyable sophomore record. It’s lovely, though; Elena Tonra has a breathy voice, and the way she gasps out lines like ‘I wash my mouth / I still taste you’ on ‘Numbers’ perfectly complements the frosty indie folk implied by Remi Aguilella’s dense, triumphant drumming and Igor Haefeli’s slowly pealing guitar, the latter occasionally hurtling with youthful, exuberant pace.
Out on Mon 15 Jan on 4AD
