Live Gig Video: Daughter perform a live version of ‘Youth’ and are interviewed in a Brooklyn motorcycle shop

I was so pleased to learn that Daughter were signed – rather quickly in indie band terms, actually – to NYC’s Glassnote Records here in America. On their first trip over to America, they were filmed performing their song ‘Youth’ acoustically and interviewed by the Bowery Presents, aka for those of you who don’t know, the people that own and run most of the important indie music venues in New York City that you’ve probably seen bandied about on your favourite UK bands’ American tour date posters (Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg, etc.)

I am, however, confused by the description of Daughter on these YouTube videos as “experimental folk” – how experimental can folk get? Elena Tonra sings fragile love songs. How exactly does that become experimental?
