Song of the Day: Daughter – Swim Back

Daughter shared another single ‘Swim Back’ from their upcoming album Stereo Mind Game, out on 7 April. The release follows previous singles ‘Party’, a track that recounts the place that Elena Tonra got to before deciding to give up alcohol, and ‘Be On Your Way’, a longing but resilient song about an enduring connection that is also undefinable. Returning with their first studio album for seven years, Stereo Mind Game is a new chapter for Daughter, the trio of Elena Tonra, Igor Haefeli and Remi Aguilella.

Elena Tonra isn’t a keen swimmer, but oceans pervade Stereo Mind Game. On ‘Swim Back’, deep feeling comes from the bows of the 12 Ensemble, the London-based string orchestra, arranged by Haefeli, and orchestrated by Josephine Stephenson. Their parts were – fittingly – recorded at The Pool, a space in Bermondsey, south London, which is a former swimming spot. The track is accompanied by another Tiff Pritchett-directed video. Enjoy the tune!
