Endless Summer with His Clancyness - An Interview

Vicious é o título do debute lançado ano passado pelo His Clancyness, mezzo canadense mezzo italiano, os caras acertaram em cheio no disquinho, um suave e elegante mistura de The Chills e Go-Betweens com nuances de dreampop.

Um doce e tenra psicodelia permeia Vicious do início ao fim, sempre sutil e apurada, melodioso e sedutor, a música do His Clancyness é grandiosa, em momentto ecoando Lloyde Cole e o House of Love, liricamente perfeito.

Um disco de uma banda que chega tardiamente as páginas do TBTCI, mas que enfim esta entre nós.
