Pirate Sons

233U EP

Words by Leo Cloeson

Edinburgh based trio Pirate Sons are an eclectic group of musicians who surround themselves with an even more varied group of creatives. This environment appears to have given birth to a strong introduction to a solid sound – heavy rock with a light touch.

There’s a loose feel to their distortion laden guitars and stomping drums which calls to mind The White Stripes – a relaxed delivery that comes across as a band who genuinely enjoy what they’re doing. And why not, when you’re turning out songs of this quality - particularly the track “Foolish,” which opens with just drums before the rest of the band comes in as a wall of sound.

Superb stuff, lovers of rock will lap the 233U EP up.
