After months of letting promising Daughter tunes slip by, finally a track that can’t go unmentioned: “Smother” is the new single from Elena Tonra’s London-based project, set for release via 4AD next month digitally and on vinyl in October. It’s a meditative, slow-building cut that rewards a patient listener by moving between ethereal and intimate moments. The same goes for the lyrics, which can feel universal or confessional with the turn of a phrase. The opening lines, for example, take a subtly blunt turn: “I am wasted losing time / I’m a foolish fragile spine / I want all that is not mine / I want him, but we’re not right.” A simple approach that becomes haunting as the atmosphere opens up. Save this one for a quiet moment and give it a spin above.
