Daughter – the London-based trio of singer/guitarist Elena Tonra, guitarist/producer Igor Haefeliand drummer Remi Aguilella – have launched a second new song, the soaring and devastating ‘Numbers’.
The second of a visual trilogy created by filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (behind the BAFTA-nominated Nick Cave feature film 20,000 Days on Earth), ‘Numbers’ takes its narrative from the short story ‘Windows’ – one of three works of fiction written by Stuart Evers and commissioned by Daughter.
Daughter – the London-based trio of Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella – have announced their new album, entitled Not To Disappear out Friday 16 January via 4AD / Remote Control Records. To celebrate the band have shared their first single, ‘Doing The Right Thing’
Eager for a fresh approach to music videos, Daughter invited filmmakers Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard (directors of the Nick Cave film 20,000 Days on Earth) to create three films for Not To Disappear. Author Stuart Evers was commissioned to write three short stories – ‘Dress’, ‘Window’ and ‘5,040’ – based on select Not To Disappear tracks. Iain & Jane’s videos are interpretations of those tales. ‘Doing The Right Thing’ (based on the story ‘Dress’) is the first of the visual trilogy.
‘Doing The Right Thing’ concerns the delicate subject of dementia and its debilitating, all-pervading effect on family. Jane & Iain’s video of ‘Doing The Right Thing’ is a sympathetic portrayal. Have a watch below.
The band perform a late night recital of ‘Smother’ within the Tate’s current exhibiton from their debut album If You Leave. The imagery is really quite something else as the band perform in front of famous works and stroll around the gallery.
Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, ‘Amsterdam’ offers an intimate glimpse of the trio behind the scenes when they performed at Festival No.6, set in the picturesque coastal resort of Portmeirion, North Wales.
