London-based trio Daughter, Elena Tonra (vocals, guitar), Igor Haefeli (guitar) and Remi Aguilella (percussion), will release their debut album If You Leave on Friday March 18th via 4AD / Remote Control.
If You Leave was recorded by over a period of months at home and in various spaces across London. Production was overseen by Igor 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 plumbs 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.
