Not to Disappear is the second studio album by British indie folk band Daughter, released on 15 January 2016 by 4AD. In anticipation of the album, a music video for the promotional single "Doing the Right Thing" was released on 30 September 2015. A music video for the single "Numbers" followed in November 2015. The album cover is "The World is Spinning Around", a painting by British artist Sarah Shaw.
Not to Disappear received generally positive reviews from critics. Annie Zaleski of The A.V. Club found that Daughter's "brutal lyrical honesty" sets them apart from their musical influences, including The Cure, PJ Harvey and Beach House.Sonic Seducer wrote that the band had created a dynamic mixture of indie pop, dark folk and shoegazing that reflected influences from bands such as London Grammar and Massive Attack. Marcy Donelson of AllMusic wrote that despite its reliance on "sound-defining delay, a dark tone palette, and friable vocals", the album avoids monotony. By contrast, Rolling Stone found that the minimal instrumentation emphasizes the monotony of Tonra's "gorgeous, but largely static" vocals.
