His Clancyness - ‘Vicious’ OUT NOW
'Vicious', His Clancyness' debut album for FatCat, is out now.
Recorded with producer Chris Koltay (Liars, Atlas Sound, Lotus Plaza, Akron Family, Dirtbombs) at High Bias Recordings in Detroit, ‘Vicious’ is warm and precise, filled with an unfaltering procession of addictive, hook-filled tracks.
Described by its author as “a sassy, dreamy glam rocknroll album”, the softer-edges of His Clancyness’ earlier recordings are here replaced by a dynamic of real drive and bite, where every part feels perfectly balanced and intended.
The deluxe LP includes a beautiful screenprinted handmade foldout 66x90cm two sided poster documenting the band recording Vicious in Detroit through photos, original notation sheets, scrapped lyrics and most of all the stories of what inspired and then became VICIOUS.
MP3 download code available with LP.
'Vicious' is out in North America tomorrow.
