Sob Story, the soon-to-be released album from Spectrals not only shows a level of musical growth from brothers Louis and Will Jones, as the project has now become a full band; but it also shows two other things – that Louis Jones can write a song that feels crafted and well thought with a truly British wit; and that his most obvious influence is the great Elvis Costello – in fact, Louis Jones’ voice sounds quite a lot like Costello, too. Album title track, “Sob Story” is the latest single from an album that may well be on many Best of Lists this year, and it puts Jones’ sad sack, mopey voice behind a twangy, country rock guitar. The song lilts and wilts about, and it just fits.
