Captain Wilberforce Black Sky Thinking

Captain Wilberforce Black Sky Thinking

Captain Wilberforce (Simon Bristoll) is back after a six year hiatus. Chock full of great melodies, ample hooks and compelling lyrics, Captain Wilberforce Black Sky Thinking is a wonder to hear, particularly for those who are predisposed to pop in the vein of the Finn brothers.

Easy, smooth harmonies juxtapose rolling thunder guitars, making “Good Times You Said” feel like a smack in the face that leaves a mark (but we secretly enjoy). “You Can’t Have Me” is a beautiful acoustic piece with a great piano accompaniment.

You’ll immediately hear the Squeeze influence on “Everybody’s Talking To Themselves”, a quirky little masterpiece and probably my favorite track on the LP. While the melodies are light and uplifting on much of the disk, the mood from a lyrical perspective is a good bit darker. Case in point; “Someone To Love”, a story about a women pondering her overdue exit from a dysfunctional relationship.

Similar can be said for the final song and title track. Captain Wilberforce are: Simon Bristoll (vocals/guitars) are Carl Banks (drums), Rob Simpson (guitars) and Massimiliano Borghesi (bass/vocals).

Captain Wilberforce Black Sky Thinking is a highly enjoyable new release and is available now Through Kool Kat Musik.
