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."

Tue 22 Jan 2019
When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.
