Alex Clare is just the sort of musician you’re glad is still being made in the country’s basements, backrooms and bedrooms. Born and bred in South East London and raised on his dad’s bebop records, as a child Alex toyed with the trumpet before taking up the drums to help him get rid of all his nervous energy. You may have heard the explosive west-coast punk-rock thrasher Up All Night, which pitches Clare’s songwriting skills up against very 21st century grimy drums and thick waves of bass, while Too Close has a speaker-wrecking, dubstep bass line, and hair-raising rave-anthem chords. It feels like a monstrous hit in the making. Alex has not played live for a year while he’s been perfecting this album – he admits to a fairly obsessive nature. His sophomore album, Three Hearts, was finally released August of this year. You can get his latest news at AlexClare.com.
