Biography

Incorporating moody folk and hushed electronics in ways that recall Cat Power as well as the xx, Daughter began as the solo project of singer/guitarist Elena Tonra. Tonra was performing on her own when she met guitarist Igor Haefeli, who joined Daughter along with drummer Remi Aguilella to complete the band's lineup. The trio self-released a demo as well as their 2011 debut EP His Young Heart, which led to Mumford & Sons' label Communion releasing their second EP, the more polished and eclectic The Wild Youth, later that year. Early in 2012, Daughter signed with 4AD, which released the single Smother that October. The band's debut album, If You Leave, arrived in April 2013. After an extensive tour in support of the debut, Daughter reentered the studio to begin recording their second album, Not to Disappear. The record was primarily self-recorded, after which they took it to Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, War on Drugs, Animal Collective), who produced the final mixes at his Rare Book Room studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It was released in early 2016. For their next project, Daughter composed a score to the video game Life Is Strange: Before the Storm. The track "Burn It Down" was released as the score's first single in August 2017. ~ Heather Phares
