Having received the email that read something along the lines of “Fair Mothers collaborating with Kathryn Joseph and production by Marcus Mackay”, there’s not really much more you need as a sales pitch.
‘Blind’ is the first single to be taken from Fair Mother’s forthcoming album Through Them Fingers Yours And Mine. The moniker of Aberdeen’s Kevin Allan has received notable praise already and is our Song of the Day.
An ageless songwriter, Allan’s debut ‘Blind’ is a mixed bag of low, soft and tender accented with solemnity. It meanders through countless thoughts and feelings, all the while signalling his rite of passage from alt-country to melancholic folk. Joseph is the icing on an otherwise near perfect cake.
