#128 Butcher Boy – Carve A Pattern

butcher boyBrilliant Glaswegians Butcher Boy released this slice of gorgeous indie pop from album React or Die in 2009. Their record dropped through our mailbox from flawless DIY label How Does It Feel to be Loved? And we were instantly captivated.

Full of perfect rhyming couplets – songwriter John Blain Hunt pens lines like “With blood and tissue, I will miss you / but don’t follow me in / Pretend to drown and I’ll pretend to swim” – this bittersweet love song has been a favourite here at FFS ever since.
