Daughter have revealed details of their debut album which will see the light of day this Spring. The London-based trio of Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella will release If You Leave on March 15th 2013 through 4AD worldwide (April 30th in N. America via Glassnote).
‘If You Leave’ was recorded over a period of months at home and in various spaces across London. Production was overseen by Igor with additional production from Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Adele) and Jolyon Vaughan Thomas (Maps), and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83) at High Bank Studio and mastered by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios.
Daughter started life in 2010 as an outlet for the musings of Elena and Igor, then fellow class-mates studying music in college. A four-track EP His Young Heart was self-released in April 2011, The Wild Youth EP followed soon after. Remi completed the line-up in late-2011. On the strength of those two releases alone the trio have gained a loyal fan base, which continues to grow. Daughter’s last single ‘Smother’ garnered huge radio support, with the song playlisted at Radio 1, 6Music and XFM, whilst their first major UK tour – commencing next week – is sold out; a clear indication that this young trio’s star is on the ascent.
Daughter played a sold-out Button Factory in Dublin in January 2013.
