Daughters’ “City Song” Gets Short Film Treatment Via ‘Magic Relighting Candle’


Daughters teamed up with Alexander Barton to create a short film dubbed ‘Magic Relighting Candle‘. The visuals for it accompany “City Song” off of Daughters‘ recently released new album, “You Won’t Get What You Want“. Barton said of that:

“As a friend and collaborator of Daughters, I complimented six minutes of experimentation with a familiar household performance to their introductory track ‘City Song‘. The flame teases the hopeful youth and rhythmically refuses his satisfaction. Flickering in and out of grain and noise, disappointment and smoke, ‘Magic Relighting Candle’ challenges the creative and superstitious.”

Daughters guitarist Nick Sadler added:

Alex has been an important friend and cohort for about 20 years now. He is also one of my favorite creative thinks. We are always in good fortune when Alex has a project in mind for Daughters.”
