Joker’s Daughter has made an appearance on Double Six Club TV, where she performs the tracks ‘Lucid’, ‘The Running Goblin’ and ‘The Worm’s Head’ from her recent debut album ‘The Last Laugh’.

On record, Joker’s Daughter is the collaboration of vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Helena Costas with respected artist and producer, Danger Mouse. In 2003, Helena began sending her home recordings to Danger Mouse, a correspondence that continued as his career grew. The two artists discovered a natural affinity, and launched a collaboration, which they named after one of Helena’s many shifting personae. Together, they make music both timeless and fresh, from a strange, uncharted world.

Joker’s Daughter will be performing the following live shows in London in March:

Thursday the 11th of March – Club Fandango at The Monarch (with Paper Planes and Anison)

Saturday the 27th of March – Barfly (with Alcoholic Faith Mission and Victoria &  Jacob)
