What a difference 4 months can make. Daughter are now deservedly signed to a prominent independent label (4AD), they have collected sparkling reviews from selected festival appearances across the UK and US. Their newest release, 'Smother', signals the widening of Daughter’s catalogue of stunning alt-folk to flesh out an anticipated debut album.

The as-yet-untitled forthcoming album could well prove to be a high point for British independent music next year. The new single, 'Smother', wholeheartedly delivers on lead singer Elena Tonra’s promise at their first headline gig in Islington earlier this year, asserting that the best is yet to come. Having posted their first major transatlantic tour dates, that sentiment may well extend stateside.

The fate of their first album is made even more interesting by the 4AD stable mates who will be rubbing shoulders with Daughter throughout its progress. The likes of Beirut, Iron & Wine, Bon Iver, The National and Purity Ring could help influence Daughter’s raw talent at such an early point in their short career. We're sure 2013 will only bring great things for this extraordinary trio.
