If you are looking for some melodic hardcore to add to your bandolier of punk then Clowns might be for you.
His warm voice with it’s appealing subtle, world-weary cracking contrasts beautifully with the smooth polish of the rich, joyous melody.
There’s an exaggerated cool irreverence that is like a musical sibling of a Portlandia skit: silly but capturing something real.
He breaks apart the plastic façade of suburban life to pick up the pieces of hope and sadness that exist in all of us, turn them in his fingers and capture them in verse.
Sounds a lot like Fugazi during their Repeater days. It’s chaotic with speed ups and slow downs but a solid hook that keeps it all together.
