The Clause are a four-piece from Birmingham who bring together the swagger of the 60s, the rolling groove of the 80s and the riotous verve and attitude of the 90s. Pearce Macca (front man), Niall Fennell (drummer) Jonny Fyffe (bassist) and Liam Deakin (guitarist) effortlessly combine huge hooks with gritty verses, indie sensibilities and rhythm and blues groove and melodies to create an altogether different beast.
The music defies categorisation, rolling seamlessly from crashing percussion to huge, swinging bass. There are epic singalong choruses destined for stadiums and packed festival main stages, and darker, edgier moments evoking late night cruises down dingy back streets. The band have been together since they were kids and they have matured into one of the UK’s most exciting new bands.
They have hit the road throughout autumn and winter wowing cities and festivals including main support slots for the Pigeon Detectives, Slow Readers Club, DMAs and The Snuts. Reviews from the shows have been stellar and the band are very excited for their solo national tour in February/March 2022.
The band have been featured, to date, on Radio 1, 6, X and XS as well as Soccer AM & Clashmusic.com. They were also honoured to play on Radio 1’s Big Weekend this year. Two singles have reached No1 in the itunes rock chart and just outside the Top 20 on the main chart and they have been playlisted by Spotify on All New Rock, Deezer’s Hot New Rock and YouTube’s Your New Alternative Playlist. The last three singles have witnessed real growth with 2.5 million streams and over a half million listeners. There are plans for a mega release in spring 2022 with a high-profile collaboration in the offing, watch this space.
The Clause have had extensive support across all media – Soccer AM, BT Sports, This Feeling, Gigslutz, Band of the Day on Maximum Volume Music and Scottish Music Network among many others, plus a cover feature in the Sunday Mail and two-page interview on the Daily Record.
