Sons and Daughters | WIG155 | Released: 05/06/05
Sons And Daughters have returned with their first full-length album, The Repulsion Box, a similarly enthralling set of songs as 'Love The Cup' that further explores their unsettling addiction to murder ballads and celebrates the urgent, unpolished sound of a band who can nail a track in a single take. Whilst a dark undercurrent is integral to their songs, Sons And Daughters wrap their sinister lyrics round relentlessly catchy melodies. Forthcoming single Dance Me In, all pounding drums and nagging guitar riff; the upbeat stomp of Red Receiver and the 60's sound of Taste The Last Girl with it's na-na-na-na vocal. In contrast the album's centrepiece Rama Lama strips their sound down to the bare minimum to astonishing effect.
