Daughter Mercury Lounge NYC 3/9/12

I was very excited to have caught London based band Daughter at Mercury Lounge. It was the bands first headlining show. Singer songwriter Elena Tonra and her guitarist boyfriend Igor Haefeli and new member and drummer Remi Aguilella played all songs from their new EP His Young Heart as well as some great new tracks. "Landfill" and 'Candles" sounded even better live than the recording. Haefeli had quite the guitar alchemists pedal board he even had a foot pedal shown below with which he triggerred bass and keyboard sounds. He broke a string mid set and Tonra played the lovely acoustic "The Woods," while he fixed it. The band played some amazing new material which featuring more bass and drums and keyboards. Each member got to played bass on a track passing around a sparkly silver Dan Electro. The band thanked the New York crowd for being so attentive to their set. Daughter played a amazing show. Unfortunately they had a late start for early slated set and had no time to play an encore which the enthusiastic crowd demanded. Check out some live video's from the show below.
