That dark and dandy duo, The Handsome Family will be back for more music and fun in Glasgow in March 2018.
Rennie and Brett Spark are playing the 02ABC on Sunday, March 11 and, if the “song Gods grace” them, new songs may well be scattered through their mercurial, magic western Gothic playlist reflecting
life in New Mexico.
They play joyously for their fans whom they have described as “spirits, wild dreamers and shadow singers.” The song topics may be weird and wonderful, but they capture the deadpan humour that underpins so much of their skewed output.
Their fan numbers have soared since their 2003 song, “Far From Any Road” from the “Singing Bones” album, their sixth, was used as the theme tune to the hugely popular TV series True Detective. It became a global hit.
Rennie and Brett bicker endlessly on stage – and it all adds to the enjoyment of it all.
They are great musicians with an intriguing range of songs so any show by The Handsome Family is one to savour.
