Creative Review New Music
Clean Cut Kid have unveiled new song ‘In Your Eyes’, the flip-side to latest single ‘Pick Me Up’ – which will be available as a limited edition 7″ vinyl on Record Store Day.
Having sold out their forthcoming headline dates (including London’s 100 Club on March 23rd) and poised to play a run of shows across SXSW, Clean Cut Kid are Mike Halls, Evelyn Halls, Saul Godman and Ross Higginson; making music that they describe as “fuzzy pop ballads, washed in Mersey water.”
‘Pick Me Up’ builds on the thrilling momentum of the four-piece’s previous two singles. ‘Vitamin C’ and ‘Runaway’ introduced a band brimming with unshakeable hooks and full of imagination, 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. ‘Pick Me Up’ is a lolloping anthem that continues in that vein. “As the band grows, our lives seem to become more and more hectic by the hour!” says Mike Halls, “Pick-Me-Up is a song about that calming voice that comes poking through the background noise of life: pulling you instantly back to earth.”
Clean Cut Kid spent much of 2015 cutting their live teeth at various festivals throughout the UK but with both Google and Apple Music earmarking them for success in 2016, they are ready for the step up. The songs are there, the stage is set.
