Daughter is an indie folk band from England. Fronted by North London native Elena Tonra (born 15 January 1990), they were formed in 2010 after the addition of Swiss-born guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella from France. They have released four EPs, three singles and two albums, and are currently signed to Glassnote (North America) and 4AD (Europe). After playing the local London circuit, they toured supporting Ben Howard around Europe and have since played headlining tours around North America, Europe and Australia.
In September 2014, the band indicated that they had started working on a follow-up at their own studio in London. Haefeli explained: “We’ve played so many shows that the first album became rockier on stage and we’re playing with that dynamic”. On April 6, 2015, Daughter announced they would be supporting Ben Howard on a short string of tour dates in the United States.
On 30 September 2015 the band announced that they would release the 10-track album Not to Disappear in 2016, while the first single “Doing the Right Thing” was made available as a music video.Not to Disappear was released by 4AD on 15 January 2016, preceded by the music video for second single “Numbers” in November 2015.
