To mark today's release of Daughter's exceptional debut record 'If You Leave', my Track of the Day is the beautiful, yet bleak 'Tomorrow'. An ode to the singers realisation of an impending future without her love by her side.
Daughter, which originated as the solo project of London sing-songwriter Elena Tonra, have been well known in the independent music scene for quite some time. Releasing their debut EP 'His Young Heart' in 2011, they built momentum with 2012's 'The Wild Youth', which garnered huge acclaim with fans and the industry alike. This wave of momentum culminated with their signing to the hugely prestigious UK label 4AD, and it is with this indie music powerhouse's backing that today's full length debut record was released.
'If You Leave' is a truly remarkable record, pairing strong melodies, bleak, affecting lyrics and skilled musicianship. Without doubt this is an early contender for album of the year.
