His Clancyness - Machines

Our old friend of various guises Jonathan Clancy's loops-and-wires solo project has become a full band and been snapped up by Fat Cat Records, the first release through them being the Charade EP only available on live dates, which over here means the Bristol, Liverpool, Dublin and London dates on next month's Widowspeak tour, although this track will be on the album set for autumn release. If previously his work in this guise had been in danger of slipping into the chillwave ghetto this finds its own way of harnessing that bleached-out wooziness to a sharpness - ironic for a song about personal apathy - a big fuzzy guitar solo or two and a vaguely motorik beat.
