North London singer songwriter Daughter (Elena Tonra) could be the UK’s best kept secret. She creates lush folk tinged acoustica, conjuring images of escapism and loves lost. Her other worldly voice only goes on to further the haunting pictures that her lyrics paint. A prime example of this can be found on this sparse yet emotive piece Tomorrow.
Although it might be easy to make comparisons to the likes of Laura Marling and Emmy The Great, Daughter stands out from the current crop of female singer songwriters with her ability to make the darkest and most hopeless words seem angelic and beautiful. I’m sure as soon as you become immersed in Daughter’s wonderfully crafted world, you’ll have no intention of keeping her a secret for long.
We popped into the studio with Georgie Rogers for an informal session performance. Check out more from Daughter at her profile.
