Music Monday is a meme, created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “The Woods”
Artist: Daughter
Album: His Young Heart EP (2011)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

[Chorus]
I asked Saint Christopher
To find your sister
And she ran out in the woods
And she ran out in the woods

[Verse 1]
Oh, it was certain then
And we were trying to stop the winter
Killing all it could
Killing all it could

And I pray aloud for you
And I look out for you

[Verse 2]
We are what we are
Don’t need no excuses
For the scars
From our mothers

And we know what we know
Cause we’re made of all the little bones
Of our fathers

And I pray aloud for you
And I look out for you
And I pray aloud for you
And I look out for you

[Chorus]
I asked Saint Christopher
To find your sister
And she ran out in the woods
‘Cause she ran out in the woods

England based indie artists Daughter have released numerous EPs and 2 LPs since forming in 2010; this week’s Music Monday pick is “The Woods” from their 2011 EP His Young Heart. Primarily making use of acoustic guitar and the voice of singer Elena Tonra, “The Woods” is a subdued, warm song that could be ripped from the discography of any of the folk greats. Tonra’s voice crescendos from a frail introduction to soar during the choruses as the song builds in volume and urgency. Reverb and echo add an ethereal element to the vocals atop the insistent, finger-picked guitar for a soothing listening experience.
