Smothered, Covered and Chunked. Equally good, but I’m not talking Hashbrowns.

Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella make up one of my favorite bands–Daughter. They’re about to release more music, and this makes me happy! It’s unfortunate when artists go for long periods of time without releasing new stuff. I feel that they fall by the way-side, and most people move on to newer music (**cough cough** Justin Timberlake and Andre 3000). Although Daughter releases only an EP’s worth of music at a time, it’s often enough that there is a constant reminder that she is around and bringing it on! This time, an album will be at your fingertops.

If you haven’t heard of the London based trio, Elena Tonra will surely capture you with her enchanting vocals. Throughout all of her songs from past EPs (The Wild Youth, His Young Heart and Demos), there seems to be one character that she brings up over and over again. This person wears their heart on their sleeve. It all seems very personal.

Smother is Daughter’s newest song. Her words are intimate–something that only one’s diary would contain and the music is simple yet perfectly cradles each word. Enjoy the song below and catch her on her tour.
