You shouldn't be kissing with your eyes closed
Butcher Boy's second LP React or Die, out in April.
Over two years ago, I described Glasgow's Butcher Boy as very "Felt-y" – hardly an incorrect assessment of their sound at that time. However their new single "Carve A Pattern", for me, feels like something different. The whirring organ still manages to peek through the mix from time to time with that tone that is just SO Forever Breathes The Lonely Word, but the backbone of the song is in the bouncing piano melody, which is neither Felt nor the Butcher Boy that I recall – not at all a bad thing, mind you! Not sure what the new LP has in store for us, but assuming "Carve A Pattern" is any indication, it sounds like Butcher Boy has become a Butcher Man.
