CLOWNS have been doing the rounds for a little while now, to say the least. They’ve been on the road longer than I’ve brushed my teeth… that’s just true.
In this time they’ve released several albums- ‘Bad Blood’, ‘I’m Not Right’ and ‘Lucid Again’ to name a few. Have had a minor line up change resulting in a natural slight shift of sound & dynamic which in turn produced one of the better releases from CLOWNS in the last few years in my opinion. I believed CLOWNS had lost their grit and polished up their act for the radio, and in all honesty I had almost given up on them… however.
Today CLOWNS released their new single ‘I Shaved My Legs For You’ off their Album released today through Damaged Music ‘Freezing In The Sun’. It reminds me of their earlier releases, the way they used modern pedals and effects on classic rock n roll riffs with a driving washy power beat, then glazing their songs with a bit of eery and mysterious overtones, you know, that cemetery twang. This new release is just that, Classic Clowns vocals with blisteringly crunched fuzz riffage and on the ear harmonies, wrapped up like a mummy and buried alive.
All in all I believe CLOWNS are shifting image again, but this time at least, it seems they’re returning to the sound which lifted them from our shores and into many countries and hotels around the world. Bloody oath and good luck to them.
