Daughter to play the Button Factory, Dublin
Daughter to play the Button Factory, Dublin

One of my favourite new artists of the last year, Daughter, Elena Tonra and her band will play Button Factory on Saturday 26th of January.

Over two EPs and her recent ‘Smother’ single as well as a great Daytrotter session and a Eurosonic performance, Elena has shown that she can write slow-burning connecting folk imbued by love and loss in an uplifting and magnetic way. I’m a fan. An album is coming on 4AD next year. Tickets €15 plus fees on sale from Ticketmaster and usual outlets next Monday. Here’s a video of her on Letterman I hadn’t seen.

    Don’t think she does all the work on these Nialler. The story I heard is her songwriting was in the doldrums until she met her partner ( in the band) who gave them the dimension they needed. Great nonetheless.

      When she first appeared, there was no mention of anyone else so the story was very much put out there as Elena and then she got a band involved. I can only speak to that, I don’t know the intimate details of it. Regardless, super tunes like you said.
