Sons And Daughters
Love The Cup
(12/07/04 Domino Records)

Adele then shows her softer side in the ballad ‘Broken Bones’ in which her crisp and heartfelt vocals caress the mind of the listener, in a provocative pearl of a song. When Scott takes on the main vocal duties in ‘Johnny Cash’, his raw and compelling style as though he is disclosing a valued secret, will bring into the mind memories of The Proclaimers. Sons & Daughters are as rich and diverse as modern society and with their undoubted chemistry; they could ensure that Franz Ferdinand will be supporting them in more ways than mere friendly advice in the not so distant future.
