Daughter | Smother

August 16, 2012 at 11:52 pm 1 comment


Singer-songwriter Elena Tonra and her band Daughter have posted a song, “Smother”, from off their upcoming debut record. Up to now they’ve been dropping singles and EPs, like “The Wild Youth” and “His Young Heart”. The song, “Smother”, will also be out on 7-inch vinyl on October 1st through 4AD (UK, Europe & ROTW) & Glassnote (North America). It will come backed with a new version of “Run”. As many of you that read this blog already know, I’m a big fan of Daughter. Behind Tonra’s beautifully poetic lyrics and impassioned voice, the band has already created a number of songs that move somewhere between great and stunning. She’s a lyrical songwriter of the highest quality, and her band knows how to best accentuate her many moods. There’s a searing force behind the meek-voiced Tonra, who tends to write honest and meditative verses of anguish and love. The lyrics in “Smother” don’t disappoint: “I’m wasted, losing time / On a foolish fragile spine / I want all that is not mine / I want him but we’re not right / In the darkness I will meet my creators / And they will all agree that I’m a suffocater.” You can follow the band at facebook or read more about the group and listen to other songs from previous Their Bated Breath posts.
