His Clancyness – “Machines”
When not playing with his dreamy pop band A Classic Education, frontman Jonathan Clancy has also been known over the past few years to record solo material under the moniker His Clancyness. Now, Clancy’s turned that project into a full-band endeavor as well. Following the Bologna, Italy-based band’s string of dates at SXSW, His Clancyness have announced a debut LP due out this fall with FatCat Records, recorded earlier this year in Detroit with producer Chris Koltay (Atlas Sound, Liars, Lotus Plaza). In advance, His Clancyness will also release the Charade EP on a tape this summer. “Machines” is from the first side of that tape, a spacious, psych-tinged rock song about “feeling too much part of a mechanism and not being able to shake it.” Check out a stream and a video, below.
