If we must have a load of folky singer-songwriters this year, much better for it to be represented by Elena Tonra than most Mumford-larynxed acoustic/uke wielders. Daughter's debut EP proper His Young Heart, released on Bandcamp on the 20th, is of a piece but subtly shifting, sweetly acidic around the physical concepts of love and hate, the idea of escape allied to wondering how she ended up like this, all rendered as honest self-discovery. The intimacy of the recording and richness of the language draws you in as long as you remember getting too close could be dangerous. The launch is at the Slaughtered Lamb in London on release date, with two Great Escape bookings and an appearance at Lounge On The Farm to come.
