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.

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