Video of the Moment #1953: Daughter

By on Tuesday, 10th November 2015 at 6:00 pm

On a grey, rainy, miserable day like this in Washington, there can be nothing better than a new video from the Communion-related band who have cornered the market on relationship doom and gloom, Daughter. Following on from the uber haunting ‘Doing the Right Thing’ unveiled last month, Elena Tonra “feels numb in this kingdom” in ‘Numbers’.

The person who’s feeling most numb, it seems, is the story’s main character, a mysterious woman in red who can cause terrible suffering on what appears to be chosen victims, and just by her looking and thinking about these poor souls’ misfortune. Weird concept for a video, but considering how unearthly and sinister Daughter have managed to make the song feel, it works. The band make a quick cameo in the club scene near the end, but it’s pretty quick, as if you’d miss them if you blinked.

Daughter’s second album ‘Not to Disappear’, the hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2013’s ‘If You Leave’, is out the 15th of January 2016 on 4AD in the UK and Glassnote Records in North America.
