Pressing play on Daughter‘s second album, Not To Disappear, is a wondrous thing. The band showed huge promise with early releases and their first LP was a study in ethereal beauty. Not To Disappear though, shows a band flexing their muscle and seeing what they can do. Sure there are still moments of extreme quiet beauty such as To Belong, and Fossa unveils itself slowly as the beating heart of the album, but then the angst-rock of No Care comes staggering in a haze of vodka fumes and sex.

Not To Disappear is definitely a contender for indie album of the year, but more than that it’s so very exciting because it shows just how bright Daughter’s future is at this point.
