Following sold out Los Angeles and NYC shows while on tour this May, Daughter has (finally) unleashed the music video for “Youth,” my personal favorite from the British indie folk band.
The song, which originally appeared on the trio’s 2011 The Wild Youth EP, serves as the official third single from their fantastic 2013 debut album, If You Leave.
Preceded by singles “Smother,” released September 3, 2012, and “Human,” released April 29, 2013, “Youth” will be available August 7, 2013 as a limited edition 7″ backed by new track titled “Smoke.”
The somber tune’s simple black-and-white visuals are correspondingly sorrowful, intimate, and beautiful.
Director The Mitcham Submarine depicts members Elena Tonra (lead vocals, guitar), Igor Haefeli (guitar), and Remi Aguilella (drums) performing under separate spotlights as she laments, “If you’re still bleeding you’re the lucky ones / ’cause of most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone / we’re setting fire to our insides for fun…”
