Already, our fifth episode in the exploration of the Montreux Jazz Festival Indie Folk line-up! Today, we discover DAUGHTER likely one of the newest bands playing this year in Montreux. This band originally from London released their debut album, “If You Leave”, in March 2013. Not bad to be 1 month later announced on the line-up of one of the best festivals in the world: Glastonbury!

Here is “Youth”, their lead single:
And here is the more “Human”, my favorite:
