Daughter is Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli & Remi Aguilella.

They write dark, ethereal & beautiful songs that showcase a group of young musicians experimenting delicately with a rich array of songwriting ideas and yet remain intent on pouring out their soul pure and unadulterated.

Following a series of demo tracks made available via their social network pages at the end of 2010, Daughter’s star has gently risen, collecting fans one-by-one as these reached enthusiastic friends and bloggers.

The band were soon invited to perform sessions for Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music and Rob Da Bank on BBC Radio 1. Landfill - the lead track from the band’s His Young Heart EP - was soon added to the BBC 6 Music playlist

Debut festival performances were also chalked up at Bestival, Lounge on the Farm, Great Escape and two stunning shows on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading/ Leeds Festivals

In February 2012 Daughter were invited to support Ben Howard on his huge UK tour, including two shows at the legendary Shepherd’s Bush Empire before wowing the crowds at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.

Current EP The Wild Youth was recorded in Crouch End with producer Ian Grimble (Igor Haefeli takes co-production duties) it was released on 21st November via Communion Records (Michael Kiwanuka, Ben Howard).

Daughter have just signed to 4AD for the UK and rest of the world in April, the band are with the Glassnote label in the US.
