Clean Cut Kid have announced details of their debut release. ‘Vitamin C’ will be released in June through the band’s own Babe Magnet Records/Polydor. The track is a perfect introduction to the four-piece from Liverpool.

It’s a three-minute slice of jubilant art-pop, armed with a triumphant chorus and a gliding, undeniable groove. Clean Cut Kid are Mike Halls, Evelyn Halls, Saul Godman and Ross Higginson. “Soulful pop ballads, washed in Mersey water” is how Mike describes the band’s sound.

The quartet possess an old-school gang spirit, their deep bond formed by around-the-clock rehearsals at their practice space in Liverpool. The group would spend day and night hunkered down there – Saul lived in it for a period and Mike and Evelyn were on the same road.

Keeping up with Mike’s prolific output, they have emerged with a wonderfully distinguished sound, where pop and experimentalism combine in glorious harmony. The bounding ‘Vitamin C’ is the first payoff of those intense writing sessions.

‘Vitamin C’ will be available on iTunes and Spotify from June 2nd, with an impact date of July 24th. A 7” version of the single will also be released on this date. The four-piece will precede appearances at Latitude, Secret Garden Party and Somersault Festival with a slot at Huw Stephen’s night at the Social in London on June 9th. More dates will be announced shortly. Clean Cut Kid have kept themselves locked away. Now, there will be no stopping them.
