Daughter – Not to Disappear (4AD/Glassnote, 2016)
Despite a three year gap, Daughter’s sophomore release Not To Disappear picks up right where their debut left off. Though the London band have added more drum machines and electric guitars, it remains a hauntingly eerie experience due largely in part to Elena Tonra’s unmistakable vocals. Heartbreak and gloom constantly linger throughout, notably on “No Care.” Regardless of the fact that the album holds no singular anthem, Daughter’s Montreal tour date has been sold out for months, which speaks volumes for their artistry and solidifies their place in the indie music landscape.
Trial track: “Alone/With You”
