After their critically acclaimed self-titled album released in 2011, The Son(s) return with their latest EP Leviathan, which will be released on 7th May 2012 via Olive Grove Records.
“These songs were sung and recorded in an old cold, empty, echoey flat in Edinburgh. Away from home, stuck in the dark middle of winter. It was the coldest winter there for more than 50 years.
