Campbell Sibthorpe – Death For The Decent

Coming-full-circle-lullaby as sung by Campbell Sibthorpe.

Campbell Sibthorpe Death For The Decent

Campbell Sibthorpe is an alternative folk songwriter from Bristol who already counts with a self-titled EP under the belt. Death for the Decent is the first song of Campbell’s upcoming EP Sky Lily. This time, he seems to have developed his music into something a little more melodic, with the introduction of an open sounding guitar. Drawing comparisons with Sufjan Stevens and Elliot Smith is pretty easy. What’s not easy is the ability to distantiate from those bigger names and create a distinct sound for oneself, as Campbell does seemingly effortlessly.

Talking to Campbell, he disclosed his favourite line to us. “You stole my wallet though…it’s in your hand you liar”, this is a direct quote from a conversation/dispute. It’s not always easy to articulate a precise feeling, but for me, this hits the nail on the head. But good thing Death for the Decent is all about coming full circle, as the lyrics go “Approach upon the gate/brother it’s okay/all is forgiven”.

Thoughts may be hard to put into words, but it doesn’t seem like it judging by this single. Campbell, we can’t wait for Dandelion! (Here’s a little sneak peak for what’s coming:)
