As anyone lucky enough to have already picked up their recently released album ‘Knots’ will know, Sons of Noel And Adrian have broken far away from the acoustic roots of their debut album which lead them to tour twice with Mumford & Sons and support Laura Marling at Royal Festival Hall. The duelling fingerpicked classical guitars are still there, but they’re put through cranked up, needle-in-the-red valve amps. There’s still a bit of banjo, but it’s played with an e-bow and a slide so it sounds like a haunted Hammond organ. There’s plenty of actual Hammond, plus a kind of fairground darkness borrowed from Liars or Captain Beefheart
