North London’s Daughter left our jaws on the ground last October when they performed “Youth” – a stunning tune found on The Wild Youth EP (2012) – on “The Late Show With David Letterman.” Elena Tonra’s (vocals/guitar) cool, ethereal vocals are just gorgeous, and with her bandmates, Igor Haefeli (guitar), and Remi Aguilella (drums), Daughter casts a sound not too far away from the likes of Laura Marling, Ed Sheeran, Julia Stone, and at times, Florence Welch (from the Machine, of course) when she’s not stretching her signature dramatics.

Armed with two EPs, a successful North American tour run last fall, and plenty of gushing praise from the press (Vogue loves ’em, holla) this indie rock outfit drops their first studio full-length effort, If You Leave, on Glassnote Records (home to Mumford & Sons) on April 30.

The 10-song set, produced by Haefeli with Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Adele), and Jolyon Vaughan Thomas (Maps), will once again showcase Tonra’s unforgettable and bewitching vocal talents in addition to her introspective and haunting lyrics. Uh, in case you didn’t notice, “Medicine” provided an oh-so-perfect backdrop toward the end of Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries. Daughter’s autumnal soundscape lilts with flawlessly plucked guitars and more, reaching well beyond the walls of being a trio.

Catch Daughter live this spring when they kick off a new string of North American performances starting on May 1 at the Bowery Ballroom.
