CLUBFEET TO RELEASE “CITY OF LIGHT” b/w “THIS TIME” 7″
OUT JUNE 18TH ON VINYL VIA TOO PURE SINGLES CLUB
“instantly charming, and at a time when so much middling synth-pop is floating around, that’s worth a lot.” – Pitchfork
“Clubfeet excel at soft rock re-imagined as synth-pop comfort food.” – SPIN
“Clubfeet have a salient ability to knock a pop song out flat. And it’s all done in some of the most beautiful, rhythmic and tasteful ways imaginable.” – Filter
It’s been two years since Clubfeet released their debut LP, Gold on Gold, and the wait is over for new music. On June 18th, the five piece from Melbourne, Australia and Capetown, South Africa releases the “City of Light” b/w “This Time” 7″ via Too Pure Singles Club. Combining mellow synth sounds, driving percussion, and a sense of melody that is both compelling and understated, Clubfeet proves that the wait was worth it.

Since the release of their celebrated debut album, the original trio have expanded to a five piece, now incorporating live drums and double the synths. Together they create dreamy, melancholic indie-pop that sounds just as inspiring on a Monaco club floor on a Saturday night as it does on a lazy Sunday in a 1995 VC Golf soft-top cruising down the Amalfi Coast.
Clubfeet’s sophomore album is currently being written and recorded throughout a back-and-forth between the band’s the band’s two homelands and New York, where they’ve been working with producer Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode). It is due out in late 2012.
