SONS are from Antwerp in Belgium although from the sound of this you might be forgiven for thinking they were the latest Glasgow band I’d decided to bang on about. They come across, for me anyway, as continental cousins of Rascalton or Voodoos.
I had a bit of trouble picking which track to feature by them to be honest, because everything I’ve heard by them is equally as good. I almost picked ‘Naughty’, I originally started writing this post in fact with the track ‘Waiting on my Own’ in mind until I decided at the very last minute to switch to ‘Ricochet’. Honestly, the quality of their stuff is so consistent it’s incredible. Check out their album Family Dinner, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. This is a great band, a brilliant band. I can’t believe I didn’t know about them sooner.
You know what? It’s breaking the rules a little bit but I have been known to do this from time to time. Because it’s so good, and because it’s a song I like so much anyway, here’s a bonus track of SONS performing a cover of ‘Lonely Boy’ by the Black Keys live.
