Ex:Re

Ex:Re

Elena Tonra, guitarist, vocalist and lyricist of Daughter, has announced details of a solo project.  Running parallel to Daughter, she’s assumed the pseudonym Ex:Re (pronounced ex ray) for her eponymously-titled debut solo album, a deeply personal record that was made with both a sense of urgency and a cathartic need.

Tonra’s candid solo songs document the time after a relationship ended and are written like unsent letters to herself and others. Taking on a creative moniker, she chose Ex:Re to mean ‘regarding ex’ and also ‘X-Ray’ as a way to look inside and see what is really there. 

Ex:Re is signed to 4AD & Glassnote Records. She is published by Universal Music.

Introducing Ex:Re; The Solo Recordings of Daughter's Elena Tonra

Introducing Ex:Re; The Solo Recordings of Daughter's Elena Tonra

Elena Tonra, guitarist, vocalist and lyricist of Daughter, has announced details of a solo project.    

Running parallel to Daughter, she’s assumed the pseudonym Ex:Re (pronounced ex ray) for her eponymously-titled debut solo album, a deeply personal record that was made with both a sense of urgency and a cathartic need. Just finished, it’s being released with equal speed and will be out digitally this Friday (30th November).    

Tonra’s candid solo songs document the time after a relationship ended and are written like unsent letters to herself and others. Taking on a creative moniker, she chose Ex:Re to mean ‘regarding ex’ and also ‘X-Ray’ as a way to look inside and see what is really there. Writing took a year but the recording process lasted mere months, turning to Fabian Prynn (4AD’s in-house engineer and producer) and composer Josephine Stephenson on cello to help bring Ex:Re to life.
