My Top 10 Albums of 2013 – No.5

If You Leave5. Daughter – If You Leave

The single ‘Smother’, taken from Daughter’s debut album, has already started down the ‘Teardrop’ route towards mass use for those emotional TV Drama trailers. And, like Mezzanine before it, the parent album, If You Leave is a delicate, well-crafted record, where any track could feasibly be soundtrack material. However, rather than the Trip-Hop of Massive Attack, Daughter complement delicate, sometimes tribal drums with atmospheric guitars and the gentle vocals of singer Elana Tonra creating an evocative, haunting sound all of their own.
