Tracklist: The Son(s) - Radar

"The Son(s) were three men in a band, in Edinburgh. One Son went to London, and made his fortune in the movies. Another Son went to Oxford and lives in a small commune there. The last Son eventually went back to the North East of Scotland and wrote and recorded these songs." We see. When we wrote about them/him a while ago we mentioned John Martyn and Bon Iver; this new single, out on the 17th, edges away from that woodlands sound to journey down a barely lit open highway, harmonic but still intimate and in waltz time too. There's something here of a more straightforward Grizzly Bear, the Antlers or Sam Beam when he's not messing about.
