Family Matters: Daughter Sings Best

I’m the first to admit that I have a penchant for talented female vocalists. So, it’s no surprise that English band Daughter has me totally enamored.

Daughter’s leading lady, Elena Tonra, has a voice that’s undeniably ethereal and entrancing. The songs on their first full release, If You Leave, are full of delicious melodies that ease you in by starting delicate and slow, but build to a mighty and affecting multi-layered experience over the course of the song. The album’s lyrics are smart and well-written, and the tunes carry a haunting sadness to them, but that isn’t to say the album isn’t without upbeat, poppy spots as well. For these reasons and more, If You Leave makes for a full-bodied, emotion-filled listening experience; one that I highly recommend.

About Nora

A recent graduate into the “big scary real world,” Nora’s life is mainly comprised of embarrassing situations, great adventures, and meticulous journaling about both. Nora tripped on stage while receiving her college diploma and then promptly moved 3,000 miles away, but somehow her parents still love her. She is music-obsessed and can be expected to pump up the jams and dance like a crazy person every chance she gets.

    I’m loving them at the moment. I’ll be seeing them in August opening for The National and I’m super excited!
