NOTE: The above embed is of a live recording of this song.
Youth by Daughter – off the album, “If You Leave” – starts out calmly enough with just vocalist Elena Tonra’s singing and a soothing guitar sound. But once the powerful drums section enters about a minute into the song, they give the song a real strength, helped by the lyrics about the pains of broken relationships. With words like “setting fire to our insides for fun” the song creates a real vision of what is going through our subject’s mind during this dark period in their life.
The song is currently available to download for free from the USA iTunes store. Expired.
If You Leave is available to download from the iTunes store and Amazon MP3.
