Hot on the heels of support dates with Svalbard and Heriot, Brighton-based feminist experimental electropunk trio CLT DRP are delighted to announce an extensive run of 2022 UK headline tour dates with tickets on sale now.
The band will also support Maybeshewill on their forthcoming London show at Islington Assembly Hall on 15 December 2021.
Alongside the tour dates, the band are pleased to reveal a special live video for their exclusive cover version of Dolly Parton’s track ‘Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That’.The cover is taken from the limited-edition cassette version of their latest single ‘Ownership’ which is out now via Small Pond.
We caught up with this rapidly rising trio and asked them to choose three albums that are major influences on their direction, just now. Vocalist Annie Dorret gave us the band’s responses. . .
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – K.G.
SOPHIE – Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-sides
Amyl and The Sniffers – Comfort To Me
I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love
I’m not looking for harm, I’m looking for love
Will you let me in your hard heart? Let me in your pub!”
Vibing one hundred percent off of the song ‘Security’ with that desperate single search for excitement and love. This post-lockdown life has been a weird time of grieving for everyone: grieving lives lost, time, social norms, healthy mental headspace, relationships, freedom etc. . . and this album is just a direct, positive, honest spark straight to the bones. I absolutely adore it. It’s aggy as hell and demanding; as a lyricist I definitely resonate with the album because of that demand. There’s a whole generation that are asking for more and not turning a blind eye to bullshit. That mentality is rubbing off on us, and hopefully everybody else too, and that’s all we’ve ever aspired to do as a band with our music really.
