Elena Tonra (of Daughter) - Ex: Re - New Vinyl Lp 2019 Glassnote Pressing with Gatefold Jacket - Indie Rock
Street Date: 2/1/19
As the result of a failing relationship the beloved British songwriter let her feelings break lose, resulting in a record that is as stirring as it is mesmerizing. And here's why it should become your musical ally during these cold winter days.
Ex:Re is the name of Elena’s first proper solo record, recorded in a short amount of time despite the fact that the writing of these songs took her nearly a year. An inner urgency encouraged her to get this one out as quickly as she could. ‘I knew I couldn’t live with these songs inside my head for long’, she describes this feeling. With the help of 4AD’s in-house engineer and producer Fabian Prynn and befriended cellist Josephine Stephenson she formed tiny little songs out of these thoughts. The result is a tender melancholic record, carried by a nocturnal late-night vibe that perfectly fits into the current grey winter days. Especially fans of the earlier more reduced Daughter material will immediately fall for it.
