"Several Others" marks Whispering Sons first full-length release since their 2018 debut "Image", which saw them garner early support at press and radio as well as tallying up millions of streams for their dark and unique blend of experimental and frenetic post-punk. Similarly, prior to lockdown, their infamously ferocious live shows had also seen them begin to firmly cement themselves as a must-see live band playing alongside the likes of The Murder Capital, Patti Smith, The Soft Moon and Croatian Amor, as well as touring across the UK and Europe with the likes of Editors.
The first single ‘Surface’ released at the end of Jan has already struck a chord at UK radio with support from Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft @ 6, as well as John Kennedy at X. Tastemaker press have also been quick to praise as per below..
“the first sign that they're fast outstripping the genre-trappings of their post-punk roots, and an ample showcase for Fenne Kuppens' magnetic presence on lead vocals.” - the Quietus
“Bold, dark, and immersive” – CLASH
“a confounding, confusing and continually climaxing song of dead-ends, narrowing avenues and night-time awareness” - The Line Of Best Fit
