When U.K. indie folk-rock band Daughter was promoting their debut full-length album If You Leave in the States earlier this year, they stopped by Seattle’s KEXP studios to play a few new tracks.
Two of those were the dreamily haunting ”Smother” and “Human,” both of which feature frontwoman Elena Tonra’s ethereal vocal talents.

It’s no surprise to hear that Billy Duffy loves his White Falcon. Seeing the Cult guitarist with the majestic Gretsch six-string is a common sight for Duffy fanatics. Recently, Total Guitar magazine sat down with Duffy to see how it all started.
“I always thought it was like a mythical kind of thing: this big, white semi-acoustic guitar,” said Duffy. “It was looks first.
“I really liked that Neil Young approach of getting a really aggressive sound out of a Gretsch,” he continued. “My high-school band was just slightly pre-punk. We got into stuff like Neil Young – sorta folky, rocky – and Neil Young and Crosby, Stills & Nash had them; that was the first time I saw the guitar. [Then] I joined Theater of Hate, took all my life’s savings and bought a guitar.”
