Fighting Caravans / Colour Of Spring – Split Release

Huge thanks to Aural Aggravation for the kind words & thumbs up on our first Clue Club release

Aural Aggravation

Clue Club

The other day, I chipped in on a debate over split releases, which essentially revolved around the question ‘yay or nay?’ Personally, I like split singles. I commented that I would usually purchase a split release for one of the bands, but, often, subsequently get into the other.

It so happens that the first release by Clue Club, a subscription-based aspect of Clue Records features two bands I’ve seen, heard, and enjoyed immensely in the last year. Split-singles-based projects seem to be popping up with increasing frequency (see, for example, the excellent Come Play With Me), and this represents a belting start to this one.

Fighting Caravans were up there with my favourite discoveries of 2016, and probably one of the best live acts I caught all year, on all three occasions I saw them. ‘It’s a Nice Ride (To be Fair)’ is entirely representative of their brand…

SUNFACE

SUNFACE is the solo project of Daniel Longmore, from the band Trash, and he has returned with his latest release, courtesy of Clue Records, following up from last year’s acclaimed debut EP.

The EP kicks off with lead single Stay Happy, a delightful tune that swoons along beautifully as well as being more than ably aided by the sumptuous tones of Abby Bettz.  The jangly guitars of I’m Not Always Sad sees Longmore really wear his heart on his sleeve and shows that less is sometimes more in terms of words on this fine track.  Melt does exactly what it says on the tin and gives you a feeling of melting away whilst listening to this dreamy, indie pop number.

Longmore says ‘Silver Lining is about fancying the fuck out of somebody’ which does seem to be the perfect description of yet another piece of mastery from this…

HAPPY CLUE YEAR // CHARITY SUPPORT

We had a great 2016 & we want 2017 to be better. To make this happen we’re starting the year with something I’ve wanted to do for a while but didn’t know how best to. We’ll be supporting different charities across the year, kicking off with Mind + Simon on the Streets.
Here’s 4 things we’re doing, feel free to support if you want to & can.
 
1. Every Clue Club subscription in January & February will have £5 donated to charity.
Sign up here: http://bit.ly/2fb7JrL
2. Every Clue logo or Tommings t-shirt we sell in January & February will have 100% profits going to charity.
3. Every NARCS vinyl sold in January will have £5 donated to a charity.
4. NARCS‘ downloads on our site & Bandcamp are now Pay What You Want & 100% profit will go to charity.
 
Here’s a pic of me being chucked about/supported by loads of mates at our Christmas party so it sort of makes sense to pass that support on. Mind is a mental health charity & Simon on the Streets is a Leeds based charity helping rough sleepers. Both do fantastic work. You can find out more about the charities below.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout 2016 & at any point in the last 4 years. We’re 5 next year which feels like some sort of milestone so let’s have a good one yeah.
 
Love you all
 
Scott

CLUE RECORDS DIET PLAN

Want to feel a bit more breeze in your slacks? Too much pressure on your sole/soul? Let us help…
Our good friend Oly took on the CRDP & has lost almost 6 stone. Here’s what he said about the CRDP…
“It’s changed my life. I feel like Tom Hanks in that film where he goes into the future where he’s big & everything’s strange & big & he’s not sure what’s happened but it’s a really big change & then he gets back to the present & he’s not big anymore & he’s learned loads of big stuff & has had a great time. I think it was called “The Man Who Got Older & Then Went Young Again””
 
“How does it work?” I hear you cry. Well, there are just 2 simple steps…
 
STEP 1: Buy a Clue Records t-shirt = http://bit.ly/1P5rDCw
STEP 2: Exercise more, eat less, work hard, have a target, try dead hard to hit the target etc.
