Daughter is Elena Tonra, a british singer-songwriter from North London. After her first EP she joined forces with Igor Haefeli. Daughter has a very relaxing style, using a clear acoustic guitar, and ambient electric guitars. At some moments the rhythm kicks in brings the song to higher levels. A very nice style, I’ve only heard from Daughter.
Growing up in a quiet part of north London in the 90’s, Daughter (Elena Tonra) spent her days listening to her parent’s vinyl collections and older brother’s rock CDs. She later discovered the beauty of acoustic and folk inspired music and started to create stories and poems which formed the skeletons of her songs.
Wearing clothes that old people may well have died in, and a bowl-cut the Beatles would be proud of, Daughter tells tales of ghosts, drowning lovers and setting fire to her insides for fun. Daughter’s haunting voice and delicate guitar playing make her live performances spell-binding and often difficult to breathe. She talks about unrequited love, lost hope and death… in the prettiest way imaginable.
