I discovered this tune “Youth” by the band Daughter on Spotify, a Digster list to be specific. I was hooked within thirty seconds. The lead singer reminded me so much of Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine (my favorite band), that I had to flip over from MS Word to make sure it wasn’t her.

This song’s beautiful sound and melancholy lyrics are right up my alley. I particularly loved how the song built to several crescendos. It may even inspire a story, though that would be one depressing story 😉 Take a listen.
