Daughter is Elena Tonra, a singer/songwriter from North London, UK.

After releasing a 4 track Demo EP, Elena joined forces with Igor Haefeli to produce 'His Young Heart' in April 2011. On November 2011, with the addition of Remi Aguilella on drums, 'The Wild Youth - EP' was released via Communion Records.

The band signed in 2012 with 4AD and in August a new track, 'Smother', surface online. A 7" single of the song was released on October 1st, including a new version of 'Run'. The final advance of their first full length album, 'Still', premiered its video on January 28th 2013.

'If You Leave' was released on March 18th through 4AD and April 30th in North America through Glassnote, closely followed by the single 'Human' backed with the previously only available on the Japanese version of the album, 'Drift'.
'Youth' was released on the 12th August as a limited edition 7" together with a new track, 'Smoke'.

On September 2013, the band performed at Festival no.6 in Portmeirion Town Hall with an 8 piece ensemble alongside composer, arranger and conductor Joe Duddell. They reconvened to re-enact the set with 10 graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music at London's iconic Air Studio. Filmed by Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth, the '4AD Session EP' was released on 15th April 2014.

The first of a video trilogy filmed by Pollard and Forsyth, 'Doing The Right Thing', was launched on 30th September 2015. The song was also the first single off their second album 'Not to Disappear' released on 15th January 2016.

Youth
by Daughter

Shadows settle on the place, that you left
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time
From the perfect start to the finish line

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong

We are the reckless
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there
And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone
We're setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home
It was a flood that wrecked this

And you caused it
And you caused it
And you caused it

Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silouhette
A lifeless face that you'll soon forget
My eyes are damp from the words you left
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest

And if you're in love, then you are the lucky one
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone
Setting fire to our insides for fun
To distract our hearts from ever missing them
But I'm forever missing him

And you caused it
And you caused it
And you caused it
