Hard rock quintet Something Clever from Charlotte, NC have released the music video for their highly-anticipated new single “The Hill” exclusively via Antihero Magazine on June 15th, 2018. Directed by Justin Beasley, this is the first music video the band has released from their upcoming EP, “Moments,” due out later this summer.
Following their first full-length album, “Season of Light,” which was released in March of last year, the band wanted to expand their musical horizons while honing in on that signature energy that keeps fans of Something Clever coming back for more.
“We went into the studio knowing we wanted to change it up a bit,” says lead vocalist Adam Nelson. Drummer Justin Tyme agreed, “Unlike Season of Light which took shape over about three years of writing, this effort was much more direct and had a precise goal: keep to our hard rock roots, yet stay approachable for a wider audience.”
This year has also seen the addition of bassist Lawrence “Lo” West into the fold, who brings his undeniable energy to an already electric lineup. “This band inspired me in a way that I’ve been missing for quite some time,” said Lo. “I feel the band is carving out their own identity. They’re building on the ideas that worked in the past and creatively raising the bar. It’s going to sound like Something Clever, but it’s going to come out of left field.”
The group has definitely come a long way in such a short amount of time and huge things are ahead for them as well. The quintet just announced their spot at this year’s Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Concord, VA.
