I saw Clayhill support The Webb Brothers earlier this year in Leeds. I wasn't blown away but that was no reflection on the band (a bunch of farm hands was my initial impression)... the sound in the venue wasn't brilliant. However, I did find Clayhill really interesting and wanted to find out more.
When I found the new album, I bought it and have hardly stopped playing it to myself and others. All responses have been great.
I love it and really look forward to seeing the band again soon, hopefully in a better sounding venue and perhaps with a full band? Keep the music flowing. Northern Soul, Moon I hide & End Refrain are the standout tracks for me... although I haven't skipped a track through boredom yet, which is rare for me. All tracks are beautifully crafted and have explosive qualities.
Clarke, Barnes & Friend are names to look out for in the future... I'm sure we'll hear a lot more from them!
