The Verse’s Josh Tubb previews Liverpool indie-pop foursome Clean Cut Kid ahead of their show at the Prince Albert on the 25th October…
Liverpool based four-piece Clean Cut Kid are set to take their clean and punchy sound to the stage of the Prince Albert, Brighton on the 25th of October, for a bubbly evening of pop-rock delights. They are supported by Lusts, a Midlands duo playing 90’s shoe gaze krautrock, and Sad Girls Club – a native Brighton indie garage rock trio.
The Brighton show is just one date in a month long, nineteen gig UK tour, spanning from the 22nd of October to the 25th of November. This tour follows the band’s success after a strong festival presence, with appearances at Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Latitude and both Reading and Leeds festivals.
Clean Cut Kid started with Mike and Evelyn Halls quickly falling in love due to their similar taste in music and their goals for a live band. They started rehearsing as a pair and soon met Saul Godman and thus, the band became a trio. The current touring members of the band came together as of November 2014 when Ross Higginson started playing drums for the group. So far, they have released a number of singles, one of them being the song Vitamin C, a bouncy and fun song about being the one who builds you back up after a fall. It has – at the time of writing – over one million Spotify plays. As well as this, they have released their first EP titled We Used To Be In Love, with newest single Make Believe released this month and an LP promised for 2017.
I would highly recommend attending this Brighton show for a great night out of discovering music. For fans of Zibra and VITAMIN.
Clean Cut Kid play the Prince Albert Brighton on Tuesday 25th October. Tickets are still available here.
