Music Saturday: Daughter

Every week again... we're presenting another album of bands or singers we currently love.
This week: Daughter - If you leave

Daughter is a very young band, started in 2010 in London. Elena Tonra began this indie pop band as a solo artist, but later on, guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella joined. In March 2013 they released their first full-length album, If You Leave, after releasing three EPs in 2010 and 2011.

"Heavy it most certainly is, but Daughter succeed simply by creating phenomenally beautiful music and heart-rending songs. If You Leave is one of the most stunning, and emotionally captivating records you'll ever hear." - Music OMH
