They’re young men, barely into their twenties, but their tale together is old, stretching back into a shared childhood. And it’s there in the trio’s music – beautiful, emotional, uplifting, well-wrought songs that take their time to do their magic. Songs that know you don’t need a rush and a push and the chorus is ours. That you don’t have to try so hard to move the masses. If you mean it, they will come.
So Fatherson have been striking a resonant chord with crowds at home in Scotland these past three, four years. Two singles (‘Mine For Me’ and ‘I Like Not Knowing’) secured national support and airplay from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Zane Lowe and Greg James. They were from the 2014 band’s self-released debut album, ‘I Am An Island’ and there was an unexpectedly packed-out show in the 12,000-capacity King Tut’s tent at T In The Park. In November 2015 the band launched the first single ‘Always’ taken from second album ‘Open Book’ (due summer 2016), securing further support at Radio 1, Radio X (Shock of the New) and Absolute amongst others.
