High Hopes:
Sons Of Bill

Lush, literary Americana from Southern siblings, keen to stay true to their roots.

Sons Of Bill remind you how rich and deep Americana can be. Formed in 2005, their fourth album, Love And Logic, is steeped in the sound of forebears such as REM and Wilco. The latter’s ex-drummer Ken Coomer produced, helping create a sound where steel guitars and synths ring out, as do the unusually crafted and haunting lyrics, shared between Charlottesville, Virginia brothers Abe, Sam and James Wilson.

After their last album, 2012’s Sirens, a minor US hit, Sons Of Bill left their big-time label and management behind. Many of the new songs are accordingly about not grasping for success, but instead going with the flow.

Love And Logic is out now via Thirty Tigers.
