Father/Sculptor #3 - Lowlands

Facebook / fathersculptor.com

A long overdue catch up with Father/Sculptor now, it's been about a year since I last mentioned the Glasgow quintet after their early demos impressed me with powerful and emotive soundscapes awash with marvellous guitars, clever lyrics and fantastic atmosphere now they return to this little blog with their best track yet, the stunning "Lowlands", the lead track from their debut EP Faith & Violence which is released next week (and is available on digital/vinyl via bandcamp).

The track swoons with raw emotion and a knock-out vocal delivery, where brooding guitar textures compliment the elegant melody on this sexually charged wonder - you might not want to watch the video below at work - also taken from the EP is "Sault", a track which immediately sounds brighter than anything Father Sculptor have released before with calypso rhythms and big drum beats, listen carefully though and amongst the glorious, bouncing groove are moody lyrics and vocals that fill the air with a darker, dramatic mood.

Father/Sculptor play a few live dates to celebrate the EP release next week - details.
