Daughter is a European indie folk band from England. The band is made up of lead singer and North Londoner Elena Tonra, Swiss-born guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella from France. They have released two EPs and one album, titled His Young Heart EP (2011), The Wild Youth EP (2011), 4AD Session EP (2014) and If You Leave (2013). Daughter has toured with the talented Ben Howard in Europe and have since headlined in North America, Europe and Australia.
My favourite song is “Youth” off the If You Leave album. I am in love with the lyrics and then you add in the drums and I get shivers up my spine. The song was also featured in the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack A Long Way Down.
Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time / From the perfect start to the finish line / And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.
