Kacy & Clayton

New album The Siren's Song out in  UK on 27 April via New West - Watch video for "Just Like A Summer Cloud"

Kacy & Clayton are set to return with The Siren’s Song via New West Records on 27 April (UK release date). The 9-song set was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and recorded by Tom Schick at Wilco’s The Loft in Chicago. The Siren’s Song, is the follow up to their acclaimed 2015 New West Records debut Strange Country, and for the first time incorporates full, electric band arrangements. Their sound is an arresting amalgamation of psychedelic folk, English folk revival and the ancestral music of Southern Appalachia. Now rounded out by Mike Silverman on drums and percussion & Shuyler Jansen on bass, The Siren’s Song encompasses their 60’s and 70’s Folk and Traditional Country influences, but also introduces a new emphasis on groove.

 
Kacy & Clayton shared a video for “Just Like A Summer Cloud", which American Songwriter described as "darkly amusing". Director Nakasone Folk commented that the clip “attempts to conjure that tragic feeling of wanting for someone who seems so close but in the end is beyond our reach.”
 
Kacy & Clayton will be heading over for an extensive European tour in April/May. They will be on the road with Clayton's previous band, The Deep Dark Woods, and they both play in the live band.
 
Combining the startlingly expressive voice and violin of Kacy Anderson with the intricate guitar work and warm harmony vocals of her cousin and musical partner Clayton Linthicum, Kacy & Clayton hail from the Wood Mountain uplands of Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. Their 2015 New West Records debut Strange Countrywas met with critical acclaim by Q Magazine stating, “Linthicum’s acoustic playing and vocals dovetail perfectly with Anderson’s crystal voice like prime Richard and Linda Thompson.” They also stated, “You’d be forgiven for thinking it was a lost late-’60s Brit-Folk gem,” continuing with “A beautiful album that nudges a classic past into a brave future.” NPR Music also offered, “Ambient textures like cursive strings, washy steel guitar, glistening vibraphone and enveloping reverb frame Kacy & Clayton’s performances...one more way that these two ground their traditional inclinations in the here and now.”
 
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Kacy says; “Jeff knows so much about recording, music and gear that it’s overwhelming, but we have a lot in common with him in regards to our tastes of production and albums from the Sixties and Seventies. It’s pretty inspirational to think that he wakes up every morning and works to advance the folk-country-rock medium constantly, considering he’s already released dozens of great albums. This was very motivating for us recording this album, seeing his dedication in motion. We recorded the album live off the floor. A lot of people say they do this, but we actually did and that’s because the Loft is setup to record and play live music. Live music is better. There are mistakes on the record, nothing was scrutinized to the point of repulsion.”
