LO V E F O R L ANS DOWNE Hey Guys! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break! Firstly I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted in the SUBU FullTime Officer Elections, we really appreciate it and I look forward to working with you for a second year! A couple of things I talked about in my election campaign were the removal of VAT from food at the Executive Business Centre, which has now been removed, and our Lansdowne placements and careers advisor – Rosie Wallis - has now started work. Rosie is based in B105 and is ready to start meeting with you guys. Drop her an email: @ wallisr@bournemouth.ac.uk or book an appointment on a Monday or Tuesday afternoon at Lansdowne via mycareerhub.bournemouth. ac.uk.

One month after the release of their debut album, ‘If You Leave’, Daughter headline The Old Fire Station. The 3-year-old indie folk band originates from London and initially showcased the solo wor k of Elena Tonra. Now a trio - with the addition of guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella - the band were signed by 4AD. The band’s music features on various adverts and in several television series’ including The Vampire Diaries and Grey’s Anatomy. Tonra was Inspired by her grandfather’s Irish folk singing and brought up listening to the likes of Dylan, Neil Young, Bowie, and Blondie. She was exposed to a variety of styles from a

young age. Consequently, the sounds echoing from Daughter’s latest tracks are reminiscent of a cross between Sigur Rós and Emmy The Great, with characteristics of several different genres. The Old Fire Station per for mance will showcase the sombre group’s latest album tracks and some of their better-known singles. The ominous music consumes Tonra’s gossamer tones and the eerie album promises to translate well to a live per for mance. Don���t miss out on the up close and personal per for mance from the next big thing. www.subu.org.uk / events
