Campbell Sibthorpe is a Bristol-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. One year after his first EP Sky Lily, he announced a new one. Ytown will be out later this year and it chronicles a commute through adolescence in a small country village. Today we have the pleasure to premiere a new track titled “Father Carpenter” which shows the intensity and delicacy of vocals performance and the dynamic intimacy fo the sound tetxures.
According to the press release, “Father Carpenter” is a coming-of-age folktale and ode to his father who kindled a love for living off the land. Inspired by his father carving the initials of a friend’s name into a tree at his thirteenth birthday party, the song speaks of a desire to understand one’s place within the landscape and what it means to make a mark, as Sibthorpe describes “carving a name has always been a significant act of love to show someone that they’re kin”.
