Live Gig Video: Daughter play ‘Shallows’ with a classical ensemble at AIR Studios in London

By on Tuesday, 8th April 2014 at 4:00 pm

On the coach back to DC over the weekend, I had a listen to Daughter‘s 2013 debut album ‘If You Leave’ (reviewed by Cheryl here) and was reminded just haunting it is. So it’s perfect timing that the band have released the first of five very special videos of them performing at the famous AIR Studios on Oxford Street in London with a 10-piece classical ensemble. Watch below as the stark beauty of ‘Shallows’ is transformed into something even more poignant than the album version with the addition of classical backing. It seems like lifetimes ago I saw them perform at SXSW 2012 at the Communion showcase at St. David’s church.

The full five-track session will be released as a digital EP on 4AD next week, on the 15th of April, and a limited edition 12″ follows on the 26th of May.
