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.
