Sometimes, it’s hard to really process the events of our lives until we have the opportunity to hop off life’s treadmill and take stock. That’s what Elena Tonra did with her first solo project, Ex:Re, which was recorded when, after three critically acclaimed albums and four EPs, Daughter went on hiatus in early 2018.

“We decided to have a little break, because we realised that we’d been together and working together for about eight years, so we decided it would be nice – in a friendly way! – to spend some time apart,” the affable 28-year-old explains as we chat with her and producer Fabian Prynn in the intimate London studio where much of the album was recorded.
