Clear Vinyl are about one thing only, leaving your problems at the door, bouncing down the front and having the time of your life. Not claiming to be anything they aren’t, not pressed with reinventing the wheel, the alternative pop quintet isn’t trying to be what it’s not, it’s just about having fun.
Having spent the last two years hidden away writing, recording and planning, Clear Vinyl are just about to show the world what they’ve been working on with their first single ‘That Feeling’.
Taking influence from bands of the moment such as Sundara Karma, Blaenavon and The Night Cafe, Clear Vinyl have crafted a sound of polished alternative pop, staying true to their core beliefs that music should be fun and an escape from the world of political and emotional turmoil that we exist in.
