If You Leave
For a record crafted by just three sets of hands, it’s an expansive and, at times, strangling experience.
Based around ten beautifully crafted cuts, Daughter’s debut LP is an engrossing and deeply moving affair. But this mesmerising listening isn't purely based on the sounds it makes; it’s just as much about the ones it doesn't. By exploring and executing periods of momentary silence, Daughter create a series of tragic atmospheres - amplified by Elena Tonra’s bloodied and sensuous crow – that ranks amongst the year’s saddest and most desperate sounds.
