Have You Heard? Daughter - Doing the Right Thing
You’d be pushed to find safer hands to entrust this kind of subject with.
Daughter have always kept things close to home. And on ‘Doing the Right Thing’, the first take from second album ‘Not to Disappear’, they bring the most stark, emotional portrayal of family life yet.
With a story from author Stuart Evers and a video from Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard to match, the song relates to dementia, and how the disease can shake the foundations of everyone around us. Elena Tonra sings: “Then I lose my children / Then I lose my love / Then I sit in silence,” like her world’s unfolding, and she’s surrounded by Daughter’s signature guitar lines, which manage to sound sky-reaching and perfectly grounded at the same time.
Few songs come darker, but Daughter are masters of their craft at this point. You’d be pushed to find safer hands to entrust this kind of subject with.
