New Music – Daughter, ‘Smother’

London trio Daughter have been teetering on the brink of massiveness for what seems like an eternity now. Recently, we went and met them at a little-known studio called Abbey Road – where they’ve been hard at work on their forthcoming debut album – to get a sneak play of this, their new single ‘Smother’. It’s released on October 1 (their first material on 4AD) and, frankly, we love it. You can read a whole lot more about them in the new issue of the mag, on sale tomorrow (August 15).

Meanwhile, the band have also just confirmed their biggest headline show yet, to take place at London’s Hackney Empire on January 24 next year. Can’t come soon enough…
