Clarence Clarity

Having eeked out a handful of tracks over the last two years, Clarence Clarity is set to release his debut album, ‘No Now’, on 2 Mar through Bella Union.

His output may have been slow and sparse, but the project has had a startling clarity of vision from the outset. Each new bold, warped funk track comes coupled with a garish and unsettling video. Everything about the venture demands your attention, and is sent out with a confidence and attention to detail rarely seen – an achievement probably aided by him testing the water with an earlier and similar but abandoned (and also once approved) project.

A UK tour supporting Jungle commences in February, culminating in a show at The Roundhouse in London on 3 Mar. And you’ll also be able to catch him at this year’s Great Escape.

You should acquaint yourself with his entire YouTube channel, but I’ll start you off with ‘Those Who Can’t, Cheat’. Or if it’s a bit early for such bright colours, below that is his latest SoundCloud release, ‘Meadow Hopping, Traffic Stopping, Death Splash’.
