“So well crafted and honey-dipped in harmonies that it's hard to stay tethered to your home”
“A psychedelic-folk wonderland, with vocals gorgeously behind the beat and music intrepidly ahead of the pack.”
In 2018 & 2019 a new line up of The Son(s) played several low-key shows supporting the likes of Kathryn Joseph, Randolph's Leap & RM Hubbert in Glasgow & Edinburgh.
These gigs featured a new set of songs most of which make up a new 12 track Son(s) LP, due sometime before the apocalypse ends in summer 2020.
Songs for the album were recorded in Leith Theatre during a particularly cold March. You can see the Theatre in the photos above & hear the beautiful, cavernous, open space in tracks such as the upcoming ‘Lord, I Am Grateful’ and ‘Deep, Dark River Running’.
Sessions also took place in the much warmer surroundings of Pete Harvey’s Pumpkinfield studio.
Pete and his string quartet the Pumpkinseeds then added sublime, luminous string arrangements to two tracks ‘The Things I Love Are Not At Home’ and ‘All We Are Is All There Was and All There Ever Shall Be’.
The record will be released by Olive Grove Records 18 September 2020 on vinyl & on all your favourite streaming platforms.
