Jinja Safari co-frontman and Central Coast musician, Pepa Knight, has been developing an impressive amount of buzz since launching his own solo venture in early 2014.  After accumulating a notable degree of praise for his debut single release – the emphatic ‘Rahh!’ – Knight is proud to announce the release of his follow-up track ‘Clams’.

Rahh!’ was embraced by worldwide tastemakers and music lovers alike after its release in April, with rave reviews arriving from the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and even India – via an in-depth interview between Pepa and Rolling Stone India about the writing and recording process behind his debut collection of songs titled Hypnotized (due late-2014).

‘Clams’ is a continuation of Pepa’s soulful and affecting sound –  an anthemic and stirring variety of dream-pop, which is as worldly as it is uniquely Australian.

Pepa Knight’s forthcoming single ‘Clams’ will be officially released via iTunes on Wednesday July 2.
