After a summer spent playing a colossal 29 festivals, the Liverpool four-piece barely pause for breath before getting back in the tour with their own headline tour last month, the hardest working band in fuzzy pop Clean Cut Kid will be heading down to Norwich UEA on 15th November with the Courteeners.
Clean Cut Kid’s first three singles ‘Vitamin C’, ‘Runaway’ and ‘Pick Me Up’ introduced a band brimming with unshakeable hooks and full of imagination, with songs that demanded your attention from the first second to the last. Time spent hunkered down in their Liverpool HQ honing their sound and endlessly writing and re-writing has resulted in Clean Cut Kid emerging fully-formed with a truckload of great songs at their disposal, gaining them plaudits across the board, ranging from NME, Clash and DIY (“Clean Cut Kid are the thing missing in your life”) to Sunday Times Culture (“Earworms that channel Fleetwood Mac, Prefab Sprout and the White Stripes”) and Line Of Best Fit (“Melodies that will lodge cleverly and instantly between your ears”).
The band have just released their brand new single ‘Make Believe’ which premiered as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ earlier this month.
This year has already seen Clean Cut Kid – consisting of Mike Halls, Evelyn Halls, Saul Godman and Ross Higginson – appear on Radio 1’s Live Lounge, play two tours of the UK including a sold-out show at London’s 100 Club and put in a triumphant turn at SXSW. Having spent much of 2015 cutting their live teeth at various festivals, the band have lined up a summer packed-full of festival performances, including Glastonbury, Latitude and Reading & Leeds.
Tickets for the Norwich gig are available at the UEA box office.
