Butcher Boy – A Better Ghost

Buoyed in America by the fleeting fame that comes from having a song played over the ending montage of emotion and contemplation of a high-budget drama drama, as each character suffers the realisation that life in such a show may be pretty but it blows, Butcher Boy returns with a single of similar subtle brooding.

Taking tips form Lloyd Cole, this is sweet acoustic Glasgow, flecked with sprinklings of clean electric guitar for melodic affect. The violas are no surprise too, but are no less welcome assuring a class already offered by the claming lilt of a refined Scot. Next stop, Grey’s.

Release Date: 23 Mar

7.6/10
