Daughter has become, since its first appearance on the KEXP airwaves in 2012, one of the most endearing bands ever to perform live in our studio. The group accrued more than two million views from just two sessions (and performed a third session at Cutting Room Studios). Earlier this year, the North London trio released Not To Disappear, its hotly anticipated second collection of spare, moody dream-pop. Here, Daughter performs the gorgeous "Doing The Right Thing," from that new album.
