DAUGHTER | At Daytrotter

December 18, 2011 at 10:41 am Leave a comment

Daughter’s session at Daytrotter was just posted this week. Elena Tonra and Co. cover four of her songs, “Candles”, “In the Shallows”, “Tomorrow”, and “Landfill”. She’s a formidable talent, with keen songwriting skills. She has an ability to make you believe what she sings, her songs all burnished with intimacy and a fragile honesty. To read a number of archived Their Bated Breath posts about Daughter click here. This is what I wrote about the song, “Tommorrow” in a previous post: “The love in her songs is as forcible as plutonium. Sometimes it ignites like in ‘Run’ or corrodes as rusting copper like in ‘Tomorrow’. Whatever the outcome, it’s passionate and intense as tragic love always is.” This is what I wrote about “In the Shallows”: “It’s so searing — heartbreaking in its understatement.” But I think it’s the track below, “Candles”, that hits on everything great about Daughter. The power of the song rests in her beautifully poetic songwriting, a marvelous ear for melody, and her skill at translating feeling into tangibility and essence. I wrote this about “Candles” back in April of this year, “At the heart of the song is a disconnection between physical closeness and true closeness.” Follow Daughter at facebook. — David D.
