Sons and Daughters are a rock band from Glasgow, Scotland.


Conceived of while on tour with Arab Strap in 2001, Sons and Daughters was initially Adele Bethel's creation. The band's line-up at first comprised Bethel, David Gow and Ailidh Lennon, and the band began recording.

After the later addition of Scott Paterson as a second vocalist, the band played a number of successful performances. Their debut release, the twenty-five-minute-long "Love the Cup" was financed by the band and initially released on Ba Da Bing Records label in 2003 and later re-released when Sons and Daughters signed to Domino in 2004.

Their debut album, "The Repulsion Box" was released in June 2005. The album features harder and more syncopated rhythms than the band's previous recording.

In February 2006 the band were invited to tour with Morrissey on the first leg of his UK tour.

Their third album, "This Gift", produced by Bernard Butler, was released on January 28, 2008. Critics have responded favourably towards the development of the band's style.
