The UK music scene has an uncanny habit of producing bands that energise a particular moment in time and out of the turbulence of 2019 an act has emerged that provides the much-required remedy of musical inspiration. The Clause are a 4-piece alternative group from Birmingham, comprising of Pearce Macca (frontman), Niall Fennell (drummer) Jonny Fyffe (bassist) and Liam Deakin (guitarist). Their sound is a combination of 60’s swagger, 80’s groove and a 90’s attack – taking inspiration from the big sound of indie and the melodies of rhythm and blues.
Formed in 2016, whilst at school, the band have evolved and developed to a position where their releases have achieved over 500,000 streams across all platforms. They have also embarked on a sold out, self-booked/promoted national tour in 2019 which included Manchester, Sheffield & Glasgow and climaxed with a homecoming sell-out at the Birmingham Institute to a crowd of 600 fans. The Clause have immense pride in the credibility of their growth, gaining notoriety and popularity solely on the strength of their sound and energy.
In just the first three days after release of their new single, In My Element, The Clause managed to reach number 1 in the UK iTunes Rock charts and number 3 in the Irish iTunes rock charts and peak at number 46 in the UK nationwide iTunes charts.
They were also BBC Introducing West Midlands track of the month for July and Radio X’s This Feeling track of the week on release week as well as being used by BT Sport during the fulltime highlights of the early kick off (12:00 – 1:00) Saturday Premier League matches for the 2019/20 season and on the second season of Channel4’s reality TV show, The Circle.
