I’ve said on occasion that I do not like music videos that merely feature the artist performing their song. And so often after making that statement, I recant it after watching a new video that is filmed in a new way that features just that. “Peter” by Daughter is not new, but the simplicity of the video fits the simplicity of Daughter’s music. A softly plucked guitar melody and deep female vocals provided by Elena Tonra with a slight accent. You get that style of greatness in session videos; they have a rawness to them, a grittiness, no matter what quality of film is used (in this case the picture is crisp and defined). This session is courtesy Tales From Shop (and on Twitter). I think you’ll like this one.

It’s been a little while since I have been legitimately moved by a song.
Maybe it’s the accent.
Maybe it’s because this song makes plenty of Peter Pan references.
But either way, thanks for the post.
