Butcher Boy (4 stars)

Butcher Boy

Profit In Your Poetry (How Does It Feel To Be Loved)


You won’t read about them in hype-hungry magazines or find them bombarding Myspace profiles with friend requests, and as a result Butcher Boy may well be one of the most exciting discoveries you’ll make this year. This debut album from the Glasgow seven-piece boasts ten melancholy-tinged tracks of swoonsome guitar pop and pretty ditties complete with distorted riffs, warm string sections, rumbling drums and poetic lyrics which will worm their way under your skin after just one listen. Best of all though, Profit In Your Poetry is a genuine and utterly heartfelt listen which will soothe those sick to the back teeth of disposable fashion-fuelled music scenes.
