Daughter has walked away with the prestigious Album of the Year trophy for their debut If You Leave at the 2013 AIM Awards in London.
Honouring the independent music sector and the musicians who help make it so vibrant, the AIM Awards is now in its third year and the event is already an important date in the calendar. Daughter were also shortlisted for Best Breakthrough Act and Best Track (for 'Youth'), with fellow 4AD compatriots David Byrne & St. Vincent, Grimes and The National also nominated in other categories.
Currently on tour in Norway, Daughter confirmed the support acts for their forthcoming UK and European tours this winter. Label mates Indians will join them for the entire UK leg in October while Broken Twin will take over for the mainland Europe shows in November. Torres will also appear on the bill at the long sold out Shepherd's Bush Empire show in London.
