It's been roughly a year since I last saw (insanely brilliant) Scottish 4-piece, Sons & Daughters. While the band focused on their 2005 release (The Repulsion Box) during my last encounter
, Saturday night's set concentrated primarily on S&D's brand new LP, This Gift
. Decked out in a swarm of gold sequins, frontwoman Adele Bethel stormed the stage for a blissful and fervent take on the gig-opening, 'Gilt Complex'. For the next hour, Sons & Daughters continued their aural assault without so much as a 15-second pause. Brightest moments of the captivating evening: a ferocious rendering of 'Rama Lama', an all-out dance-a-thon during 'Chains' & an infectious show-closing 'House In My Head'.
