Clean Cut Kid Reach Out To A Friend With New Single Emily

Thursday, 13 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Clean Cut Kid have shared a new single.

Emily will appear on their 'Painkiller' EP, which is due to arrive on October 22 and follow up their debut LP, 'Felt', which came out in 2017. It finds the band taking a more lo-fi approach than on previous releases and the result is a pop-rock number that has something of Fleetwood Mac about its layered vocals.

Vocalist and guitarist Mike Halls said:

"I want to write about things in my life, what we're feeling, whether they be sad or joyous. Emily is about someone very close to us who was suffering from a severe bout of depression. It's us reaching out and saying, "we know you're 'unwell' here and not just 'sad'." The ultimate thing is to take the deepest emotions and work it in to a message that isn't miserable."

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.
Richard Ashcroft - Natural Rebel (Album Review)
Mon 22 Oct 2018
Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
