Track 15: Youth by Daughter

Daughter is the folk project of 23 year old Brit, Elena Tonra with her partner Igor Haefeli.  Although her lyrics and tone have a distinctly moody texture, they manage to tow the line from becoming overly pessimistic and despondent.  Last spring I came across “Landfill”.  It’s paired down and evocative and stays with you long after it ends.  However, “Youth” is significantly more dynamic and poignent.  This acoustic set especially display’s Tonra’s keen aptitude towards crafting pieces that are both simple and profoundly impactful.

“If you’re still bleeding you’re the lucky ones. ‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.”
