On the Air
A base of indie mixed with chunks of alternative rock, blended to perfection and topped with randomness is the recipe for WAUG's mix. Tune in for everything from Weezer to Kaki King, Coheed & Cambria to Del the Funky Homosapien. If it's good, we play it on WAUG.
Daughter: Not To Disappear
On their second full length album, Not to Disappear, Daughter reveals that they can be a festival headliner. Daughter, originating from England, consists of Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli, and Remi Aguilella. Daughter, classified as indie folk, has also been described by Pitchfork as “nocturnal indie-pop, gothic post-punk, doomy shoegaze, chest-beating post-rock, and resplendent dream pop.”
Not to Disappear is atmospheric, cold, and abyssal. “Their second and better record … the music is expansive and spangly, like staring down a deep well to glimpse a ripple of light on the water”, says Pitchfork. In the song “Mothers”, you can hear analogous melodies to The XX. But Not to Disappear isn’t just fixated on the instrumentals, lyrics are also underscored throughout album. Daughter pools together sweeping melodies and admirable lyrics that bring the listener to another realm.
If you ever have the opportunity to see Daughter in concert, do not miss out. In agreement with Paste Magazine, Not to Disappear is “everything you could want from a sophomore release. It’s got enough of the debut in it that you’re getting what you came for with a ton of surprises to make sure you keep going on this journey with them from here on out.”
