Daughter is vocalist/guitarist Elena Tonra, electric guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguila. Together, the trio write dark, ethereal and hauntingly 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. Described by Mojo Magazine as, “unflinchingly honest & hugely captivating,” Daughter came together in 2010, and have watched their star gently rise, collecting fans one-by-one as their demo tracks started to spread amongst enthusiastic friends and bloggers.
In April 2010, Daughter self-released their debut EP, His Young Heart. Since it’s release, Daughter has caught the attention of critics and fans alike. In August of 2011, the breathtaking, “Landfill,” was hand-picked by iTunes for their powerful “Spotlight” feature, garnering the band more fans as they watched their songs climb the iTunes singer/songwriter charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Featured as Vogue Magazine’s “Artist of the Week,” they describe, “Daughter masterfully blends fluttering, heart-on-the-sleeve acoustic ballads with brooding, ambient soundcapes..." After seeing support from BBC 6 Music, they praised, "(Elena Tonra) has the most beautiful voice... destined for greatness.”
