Father Sculptor

It starts off slow, slightly dark, oozing emotional syrups of melancholy.  With time we're exposed to sections of lively guitars, more fervent drumming, and waves of backing synths.  Throughout the course of its 5:14 runtime, we're treated to a developing sprawl of varying 1980s styles, which is interesting because the new single "Frances" by Father Sculptor sounds nothing like it would come from that time period.  Regardless, there are elements here that sound just as much post-punk as they do alternative, a strange contrast that actually finds itself uniquely engaging.  That's not even mentioning the deep and cavernous vocals to accompany, the style of which reminds me very much so of Future Islands, who have proven this pairing can come out successfully.  "Frances" is the most recent single to come from Father Sculptor, who are currently busy releasing a new song every fortnight for this summer.  You know what this means...more goodies!  "Frances" will be available for a free download on July 30th, but in the meantime you can stream it below, so go ahead and take a peek.
