Sweet Shadows

by Daughter Darling

This trip hop release has been described as a more "song oriented Portishead", and "a revelation for 2003." Natalie Walker's voice, which has been compared to Sarah McLachlan's, commands the music which is dark and moody, yet very accessible.

Album Notes
"Voted Best Trip Hop Album of 2003" www.tripofagia.com

Nominated "Best CD of 2003" for the Philly Music Awards.

Philadelphia's Daughter Darling takes on the extremely diverse genre of trip-hop and breathes life into it. Natalie Walker's voice drips with soul, but it's the lyrics she sings that take this CD to the next level. She conjures up sounds reminiscent of Sarah Mclachlan and sometimes Fiona-esque way of delivering lyric contraventions and undulating emotions. Her heavenly voice floats in a storm of brilliant, dark piano and strings while dazed slow, slightly monstrous beats churn against their beauty.

Sweet Shadows bleeds gorgeous string sections, classical piano playing, siren like harmonies and combines them with lush textured beats . This project is the culmination of 6 years of beat production, the most talented piano, guitar and string players, a world class DJ battle champion and a girl who knew she was going to be a singer since the age of 3.

"USA-based Daughter Darling could well be the revelation of 2003" -www.triphop.hu-

" Natalie Walker lays her singular voice like an angel with groove"

"Natalie's voice, which sounds eerily like the marriage of Sarah McLachlan and Fiona Apple's voices, is one of the single best that we've heard in some time"
-www.musicaldiscoveries.com(all female vocals review site)-

Natalie's unique voice provides a strong basis for music that is dark and moody. The title track "Sweet Shadows" deals with her emotions of moving to a big city, feeling alone with only the shadows to guide her as she walks around seeing many "souless" people. Voodoo games, is about an ex-boyfriend who can't let go, and uses a voodoo doll to try and continue to keep his violent hold on her from afar.

Sweetest Vibe

Music that gives you the Sweetest Vibe... Daughter Darling is a Must Have!
Imagine it's late at night and you're entering into a city that's fast asleep with the street lamps overhead guiding you from stop light to stop light. The sign of life is no where in sight... stillness surrounds you. What a perfect opportunity to take it all in, every chill from every beat, every key stroked, every movement and shift of every vibe felt, she is there to accompany you through it. Every tunnel you travel through links you to the next unfamiliar scene. People and places you once visited long ago are rediscovered. Feelings and experiences are awakened within. You are not lost or alone after all. You're not to late either to take it all in... they're timeless so whenever you are ready to take that journey, take that exit, take that leap into something so fulfilling, you'll know what to do. Daughter Darling... music that will move you and a voice that will completely still you!


I agree with the person that said DD has a more Lamb sound. You can also recognize the spirituality in this album, which is very apparent when looking at Lamb. I'm not a spiritual person, but the rhythm is tantalizing and a good rhythm always sucks me in.

A Rare Treat...
I rarely find a CD or album that I totally enjoy from start to beginning... This one of those... I played it many times over... Just have not tired of this Cd...


Beyond Beautiful......
I've been a huge fan of Daughter Darling for almost 3 years now, and i'm so happy to see this cd out and how much exposure it's created! I couldn't be any more impressed or moved by every single song on the album! Thank You, Daughter Darling, for allowing the world to be a part of your gift!


I got this just off the album cover and couldn't be happier. This CD is so amazing I bought several copies as Christmas gifts.


Extraordinary Tallent!
This album had me after first listen. It reaches deep within and pulls such energy and emotion from the depths of my being. Beautiful work!

A new era: a trip-hop band raised on the genre they create.
The debut album from Daughter Darling may be the finest down-tempo-electronic-flourished-female-fronted album of all time; a specific category I know. DD don't push any envelopes or try to stray too far out of the box -- and this is probably their greatest strength. By being comfortable in their own skin, they have perfected the sound of a genre that is less than 10 years old.
I can't say enough good things about this band: strong, but soft, vocals, wonderful instrumentation & engaging lyrics. Song after song made me smile knowing that I now own an album that will soon be considered a staple in any library . . . yea, it's that good.

Out of Body

This is a well written set of tracks. Sounds like they have the right amount of artistic chemistry. only one song I really did not care for on the cd, 1 out of 11 isn't to bad.


This is an important new voice!
Every once in a great while you hear something so important that you have to share it with the world! This is it! Don't get caught up in how to categorize this voice or sound...what makes it so great is that it tempts you to really listen and as one other reviewer suggested..."close your eyes" and get lost in this music and let it wash over you, lift you and then gently let you down while sending a wave through your body.


Simply a really good cd...
Ok, I bought 2 (one for my sister) after just listening to a few of the clips here. Very well produced, it is obvious that a lot of time went into it. It is strangely addictive if you like downtempo mixed with a bit of Fiona Apple(as everyone says) but I do think the singer has a much better range than many other mix n' match trip hop singers. Now it may not be happy, happy, but it made me feel really good on a recent long road trip. I look forward to their next project.
