Father Sculptor | "Blackshirt"

With their latest release, "Blackshirt," Glasgow five-piece Father Sculptor unspool a melancholy anthem in the tradition of The Smiths. And it's not only that singer Thomas David sounds like Morrissey. The two bands also share a similar sombre tone. There is an underlying yearning, a desire in Father Sculptor's music. But with "Blackshirt," their sound is also akin to Tampa rockers Merchandise. Irregardless of comparisons, Father Sculptor should be well worth charting as they continue to develop.
