Daughter's debut album If You Leave begins with "Winter," whose chilling first lines finds singer and guitarist Elena Tonra nearly whispering, "Drifting apart like two sheets of ice, my love / Frozen hearts growing colder with time." It's a chilling opening moment that sets the tone for the rest of the London trio's record, which will see release April 30th on Glassnote, though you can now stream the LP in its entirety. Combining immensely personal lyrics with rumbling drums and dreamy, roaming guitar work, songs like "Youth" and the sprawling "Lifeforms" start as distant laments that expand to explosive catharses, while a "Human" showcases Daughter's knack for more straightforward pop that's no less affecting.
