ABOUT THIS ITEM
Welcome to the fifth instalment of the 2012 edition of The Too Pure Singles club. Pushed on by a never-ending sense of wanderlust Too Pure introduce the multinational, sultry sounds of Clubfeet.
Clubfeet is the collective identity of five men - Sebastian Cohen (lead vocals, guitar), Yves Roberts (bass, backing vocals), Montgomery Cooper (keys, programming, backing vocals), Bennington Le Bruce (programming, synths, percussion, backing vocals), and Vivian Croft (drums) - from Melbourne, Australia and Capetown, South Africa. Together, they create dreamy, melancholic indie-pop that sounds just as inspiring on a Monaco club floor on a Saturday night as it does on a lazy Sunday in a 1995 VW Golf soft-top cruising down the Amalfi Coast.
Releasing their debut album in 2010 to rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork (“instantly charming - 7.7”), Spin, Filter, RCRD LBL and Mixmag, Clubfeet have augmented and expanded their output by adding live drums and extra synths deepening and enriching their sound.
Clubfeet are currently recording their sophomore album splitting their time between South Africa, Australia and New York with producer Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode).
‘City Of Light’ / ‘This Time’ is a perfect piece of pop cool. Imbued with the spirit of lost nights, spent cruising bars before finishing up on the beach at dawn, a little worse for wear but blissfully, drunkenly content. Combining mellow synth sounds, hooky beats and a sense of melody that is both compelling and understated, Clubfeet prove with these two tracks why they should be the darlings of many a record collection the world over.
