Wolfe Sunday and ‘The Barstool Brawler’s Son’.

Wolfe Sunday has habit, a habit that sees him and sometimes his friends channel honesty commentary, a love of enjoying life and a need to sing into infectious and relatable Folk Punk. That’s it, review over. If only it were that easy…
Mr. Laurence ‘Wolfe Sunday’ Crow has returned and this time alongside his good friend Will Cummings who has once again donned his percussion hat for the latest single, ‘The Barstool Brawlers Son’ which unlike the previous and more traditional Folk-Punk song, treads a semi-acoustic Folk Rock path.
With Wolfe Sunday’s back catalogue alternating through various levels of either Folk or Punk being favoured, you never know which you will get. This new single favours the the former and actually contrasts well with the previous single ‘Damage Control’, leaving you speculating whether this next record will sit itself down or stand-up fist in the air.
Lyrically speaking you are always treated to a story, cautionary tale or a social observation that may well have its own point but quite lovingly invites you too form your interpretation.
And with this tale you gain both obviously and between the lines a look at the plight of those destroyed and or ruled by alcoholism and everything that can stem from it. From a stylistic point of view this “half-band” set up carries a playful and very much classic English-Folk sound that is nothing by rhythmic and easy listening, standing well in its semi-acoustic tone and cheer.
Here’s to what’s next.
