Clinic - Free Reign (2012)

Clinic are set to release their seventh album, "Free Reign", on 12th November.  Produced by the band themselves in their hometown of Liverpool and mixed with the assistance of Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Free Reign is an extremely apt title for a particularly bold and assured new transmission from planet Clinic. 

In the fifteen years since the release of the irrepressible band's debut EP, Ade Blackburn and co. have essentially delivered an exquisite masterclass in fearless singularity. The junkshop-trawling analogue fetishism of the warm, smoky instrumentation that gives their songs such a vividly placeable sense of mood and atmosphere; the surrealist bent of Blackburn's lyrics - so steeped in their own personal mythology - and the band's over-riding commitment to never straying into the realm of the obvious or complacent are all long-standing elements of Clinic's work that are furthered, perfected even, on Free Reign.
