Not To Disappear (LP)Daughter
Nearly three years after the release of their debut 'If You Leave' Daughter - the London-based trio of Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella - return in 2016 with a new album, entitled 'Not To Disappear'. 'Not To Disappear' is Daughter's second album and finds the band making confident strides forward both sonically and lyrically. Elena, Igor and Remi spent a summer in New York recording 'Not To Disappear' with Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, War On Drugs, Animal Collective) at his Rare Book Room studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Numbness and self-loathing sit deep at the album's core. There's no hiding from these songs: they know you inside out. It might - just - be a redemptive experience. Certainly, as Tonra flails for love among the ruins, you feel her shaking off the ghosts. 'Not to Disappear' is shattering throughout: a brooding sound board, crackling guitars, unsettling beats and Tonra buried in there somewhere, documenting unspeakable hurt, graphic and unfiltered.
