Kacy & Clayton ‘Seven Wonders’

Wow! Shindig! love this. 2018 has started on the right foot. Watch the video for ‘Seven Wonders’ from the forthcoming The Siren’s Song album below

Canadian psych/folk duo Kacy & Clayton have announced a European tour in May 2018, following the UK release of their new album The Siren’s Song via New West on 27 April.

The Siren’s Song set was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and recorded by Tom Schick at Wilco’s The Loft in Chicago. The Siren’s Song, is the follow up to their acclaimed 2015 New West Records debut Strange Country, and for the first time incorporates full, electric band arrangements. Combining the startlingly expressive voice and violin of Kacy Anderson with the intricate guitar work and warm harmony vocals of her cousin and musical partner Clayton Linthicum, their sound is an arresting amalgamation of psychedelic folk, English folk revival and the ancestral music of Southern Appalachia. Now rounded out by Mike Silverman on drums and percussion and Shuyler Jansen on bass, The Siren’s Song encompasses their ’60s and ’70s folk and traditional country influences, but also introduces a new emphasis on groove. They make music that seems to exist outside of time, tapping into centuries of tradition while effortlessly channelling fundamental human truths.
In the US, Kacy & Clayton  recently toured with Wilco and Robyn Hitchcock. They have previously toured the UK in support of Ryan Boldt (of Clayton’s previous band The Deep Dark Woods) as well as New West labelmate Daniel Romano last year. Their May tour encompasses Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter festival as well as London’s Bush Hall. Full European tour dates below.
