Daughter. Not to Disappear
The second album of Daughter Not to Dissapear is one of the few great albums during 2016.Not to Disappear reflects a mature sound of this band.
During 10 songs we can hear an influence of dark sound like Joy Division, even the guitars of Igor Haefeli remind us to Romy Madley Croft of The xx.
Not to Dissapear has a lot of influence of The xx music, in their album review Pitchfork said: “their second and better record, they fashion their own lifeline back out again.”
In the Consequence of Sound review says: “Rarely have heartbreak and gloom sounded sexier than when in the hands of London-based singer-guitarist Elena Tonra. She and bandmates Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella are experts at crafting a cold sonic landscape that’s equal parts lush and sterile, inviting and terrifying”
The lyrics is other important part on the album. Elena Tonra in an interview to The Line of Best Fit said about the writing progress: “A lot of negativity I felt we had from our first album was like ‘Oh, it’s really sad’. Obviously the lyrics are hugely personal so when someone said they didn’t like my writing, they were essentially saying they didn’t like me and they didn’t like my brain. I was anxious about the whole thing. This time, I don’t care as much. There is something quite nice about that, even if just for my own sanity, like I don’t need to feel embarrassed about my brain. This is what it does. This is what it thinks. I am openly fine with being a sad person.
Daughter is one of the bands of the decade that will be one of the most popular songs the indie music scene, because their music is marking a tendency to be innovating. Not to Dissapear is one of the best albums of the year.
