Tracklist: Daughter - Run

Helpful, producing the sort of music you want to tell people about then choosing a name that makes yourself completely unGoogleable. Daughter, who is here for further reference, is nineteen year old north Londoner Elena Tonra, who's won support from Communion Club, the folk night co-maintained by Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett. Any folkily homely young female acoustic guitar wielder is going to get the Marlingalike comparisons straight off, especially with that biog detail, but Tonra seems to be pretty close to the real deal with her sweetly acidic voice, wryly dark humour and resignedly roughshod tales of relationships, eroding patience and the world closing in around her. There will, we're assured, be plenty more this year. Can't wait.
