I'm Aware :: Clinic
Return to childhood imaginary friends, mystical creatures that seem brought to life by some Beatlesque Yellow Submarine dream and cartoon skies, make up the new video by Clinic. Fitting, as the bands sound has evolved into something that harkens the Magical Mystery Tour/Yellow Submarine era of the Beatles, fused with modern indie-pop sensibilities.
Listening to the first single, I'm Aware, as well as a featured megamix of said song, I feel as if Clinic is gifting us with some merging of Liverpool's yesterday and today.
Bubblegum, the forthcoming album set to be released in the U.S. sometime in October, is promised to be a dream state of dulcimers, strings and tack piano. Clinic plans to visit the U.S., as well, with the following dates:
8- 16 Brooklyn, NY - Bell House
8-19 New York, NY - Joe's Pub
8-21 Hoboken, NJ - Maxwell's
11-05 Washington, DC - Rock and Roll Hotel
11-06 Philadelphia, PA - Johnny Brendas
11-09 Montreal, QB - La Sala Rossa
11-10 Toronto, ON - Lee's Palace
11-11 Chicago, IL - Lincoln Hall
11-12 Minneapolis, MN - 7th St Entry
11-15 Seattle, WA - Neumos
11-16 Vancouver, BC - Biltmore Cabaret
11-17 Portland, OR - Doug Fir Lounge
11-19 San Francisco, CA - The Independent
11-20 Los Angeles, CA – Troubadour
I look forward to hearing the new album as I'm really digging this first song. What do you think?
