Sean McGowan

Son Of The Smith

Xtra Mile Recordings


Released: 11th May 2018


white lp + download

Released: 11th May 2018


the debut album from the rising folk-punk star is disarming in its scope, surprising in its erudite tackling of life’s challenges, and strong of voice with just a dab of laddish humour.

The first single taken from the album is ‘Off the Rails’, which sears along with an e-bow guitar drone thrumming underneath while Sean gives the lyrical equivalent of an arm around the shoulder and kiss on the cheek of his mates for being there for him. As a glimpse into ‘Son of the Smith’, it captures his band absolutely ploughing through the parts he wrote for them – everything was captured live on this eviscerating album.
