Loud and Quiet

Daughter fans looking for more of their panoramic leanings will be let down, but for everybody else this is a beautifully understated mood piece and Tonra’s finest work to date, with or without the band.

Northern Transmissions

Tonra has now unleashed a collection of songs both personal and subtly visceral, leaving relatable sonic imprints for the listener to contemplate.


While there isn't always a tonne sonically to separate this from Tonra's day job, it must be applauded for its brutal honesty and moments of pure poetry.

Everything expected by a member of daughter, delivered so wonderfully, it all but eclipses any of daughter's releases.

Favourites: The Dazzler, Too Sad, 5 Am, My Heart
Solid feminine breakup music for indieheads. I enjoyed it quite a bit and fully expect my score to go up with repeat listens.
Serving songs that feel cheap and generic, I did not quite enjoy this album. Translating sadness into sound is something tricky and something that requires a lot of skill. The end result feels like a first draft that needed some more finetuning, the writing and sound needed some more depth. I expected a more creative spin, like Mitski does, instead of this generic result.
Daughter started as a solo project and later on became a band, and this record really shows that, the melancholic spirit of daughter that Elena Tonra carries whenever she goes into a studio was perfectly captured in this beautiful record
