Undoubtedly, theirs is a well-trodden path, but the execution
and sincerity is compelling. On their debut album If You Leave, Tonra penned some of 2013’s most blackly arresting
lyrics: “In the darkness I will meet my creators”, she sings on ‘Youth’, “they
will all agree, I’m a suffocator.” The self-critical bite of her words find
perfect counterpoint in the melodiousness of her delivery.
Their second album Not
to Disappear is marked for release in January 2016, and lead single ‘Doing
the Right Thing’ finds the trio in rude health. The lyrics are the band’s most
ambitious to date: a poetic outpouring of loss and reclusion.
At first glance, Daughter might seem like just another modishly-attired
indie outfit, but closer listening reveals a band with depths to be plumbed. They play St John at Hackney on November 19.
