Elena Tonra from Daughter has announced details of three intimate shows she will play under her solo moniker, Ex:Re. Joining Tonra on stage will be Fabian Prynn, Josephine Stephenson and Jethro Fox, with the quartet headlining three dates in London, Brussels and Paris…

5 April – LONDON, Union Chapel
6 April – BRUSSELS, Botanique Orangerie
8 April – PARIS, Café de la Danse

Running parallel to Daughter, Tonra has assumed the pseudonym of 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. 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
