About Sons & Daughters
Sons & Daughters are a folk-rock four-piece from Glasgow, Scotland. The band is composed of ex-Arab Strap members -- singer Adele Bethel and drummer David Gow -- along with bassist Ailidh Lennon and guitarist/singer Scott Paterson. The group formed in 2001 while Bethel and Gow were on an Arab Strap tour. In 2003, Love the Cup, an album of stripped-down Americana-via-Scotland style rock, was released by Ba Da Bing Records (then later re-released by Domino). Their second album, The Repulsion Box, upped the tempo and added a confident blues swagger. For This Gift, in 2008, they called on the production prowess of Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, who infused Sons & Daughters with jittery rock hooks for the group's most accomplished album to date.
