New Signing: His Clancyness
FatCat is proud to announce the signing of His Clancyness, adding the Canadian (via Italy) songwriter Jonathan Clancy and band as the latest addition to our roster. Coming to us via a string of releases for labels like Italy’s Secret Furry Hole and Norway’s Splendour, all the while racking up praise everywhere from Gorilla vs. Bear to FADER, Pitchfork and Altered Zones, the band’s newest songs attest to Clancy’s ability to emotionally affect the listener all the wile anchoring his lush songwriting and subtle psych-pop in classic indie melodies.
“Machines”, co-premiered by No Fear of Pop and Ad Hoc is the first taste of what’s to come and will appear on limited, tour only release (The Charade EP), which will be available on upcoming dates supporting Deerhunter and Widowspeak. The song will also appear on a brand new album slated for this fall from FatCat. Check out the lyrics video over at No Fear of Pop HERE, featuring a gorgeous take on the track shot by the band’s own Giulia Mazza with lettering by designer Aleksandra Niepsuj.
Although the entirety of the music he has recorded to date has been written and played (and up until this latest album, produced) by himself, while on the road His Clancyness becomes a full band with friends Giulia Mazza (synths / keyboards / noise boxes / vocals / percussion), Emanuela Drei (bass, sampler, vocals) and Jacopo Borazzo (drums / percussion) helping out. The whole band will be out in full force on the dates below and they’re not to be missed.
