The Clause are a 4 piece indie rock band from Birmingham, made up of Pearce Mcmenamin, Niall Fennell, Jonny Fyfee and Liam Deakin.
Inspired by the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Kooks and Arctic Monkeys, they have developed a substantial following on Twitter, and in the last few days have released their debut single Shut Me Out which has sparked excitement throughout social media. The single gained over 1,000 listens on Soundcloud in just two days.
This track reminds me largely of Catfish & The Bottlemen, however certainly has an original sound to it, and fits right in with the indie rock scene at this moment in time. From the guitar playing, to the drumming, accompanied by the distinctive tone of the vocalist, it really is indie rock at its best!
The band have got two gigs coming up, one on February 6th at the 02 Academy Islington, and another on March 4th supporting The Taskers at The Rainbow in Birmingham.
From the response the track has got already, I can tell it is going to be a big success, and The Clause are definitely a band you should listen out for!
