The Son(s) have more than a bit of mystery about them. We don't know how many people are in the band. It seems there were three at one point, and there still is a Karl. But the other two may no longer be with the project. We do know that the band's new mini-album (six tracks) Leviathan is an impressive expression of introspective folky, dream pop.
"Cocksure Boys" dials it back from "If I Hear", but I think it is my favorite track on the album. "Half Lived" is dreamy and semi-psychedelic, with a full arrangement. The final two songs are "Shot Out of a Cannon" and "There is No-One to Thank". They both follow the dreamy approach of all the tracks except the second, but "There is No-One to Thank", in particular, is a very well realized pop song.
The album is released on Glasgow's Olive Grove Records, and is available on tape, with a free digital download to the purchaser. The entire album can be streamed here:
