DOYLE & THE FOURFATHERS
‘DT4F’ combine a mix of fantastic musical ability and poignant songwriting that’s putting them on a path previously trodden by some of their heroes, Scott Walker, Jarvis Cocker, Neil Hannon and Ray Davies.
With an acclaimed primer behind them the boys have torn up plans for ‘real’ careers and the like and gone full time into making music. With tracks such as Shape and Form, Obsolete Vernacular and the two singles, When Will the Children Learn and Dark Times, Doyle and the Fourfathers are making a proper name for themselves, being cited as ‘ones to watch’ here, there and everywhere – well, Japan, Spain (as well as Catalonia), Italy and Britain at least…
THESE SINGLE SPIES
These Single Spies seamlessly splice imagery and lyricism in the manner of some of our favourite things – Bill Callahan, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bright Eyes and Elliott Smith. They do this over a carefully orchestrated menagerie of regal instrumentation, resulting in a warm, welcoming sound that is equal parts careful contemplation and noir dream sequences. Its clear from the start that These Single Spies have something special. Thanks to their Beirut-style use of instruments, textured guitar lines and Alex Mattinson’s haunting vocals they muster up an epic cinematic brand of indie pop.
