Mark your calendar for Thursday March 4 when underrated pop songsmiths The Clientele play The Casbah. The London based 4-piece is known for their melancholy brand of 60’s style pop music. Alasdair MacLean’s breathy lead vocals draw the listener in to their dream world. The addition of Mel Draisey as a backing vocalist and violinist/keyboardist reinforces their sound which is a very good thing.
The Clientele’s fourth release Bonfires on the Heath is as rewarding a listen as any of their previous efforts. It is comforting to know this is a band that delivers their brand of pop as well as anyone on the current indie scene.
The Wooden Birds set the stage.
