Hailing from Leeds, Klammer draw on the members’ shared love for all things angular, dark, loud and melodic. Previously described as the love child of XTC and Gang Of Four, they offer an enticing contemporary twist on the post-punk attitude, blending elements of goth rock, punk rock and dark wave, all with dark pop sensibilities. You’ll find plenty of hooks and a dark and edgy broodiness coursing through their sound.
Formed by UK Producer Steve Whitfield (The Cure/The Mission/Jane Weaver) in 2014, they have already released 3 albums to great critical acclaim, with last years ‘You Have Been Processed’ receiving fantastic reviews across the board. The singles ‘Modern God’ and ‘Spiral Girl’ off the album, both received airplay on 6 Music.
Having consistently played up and down the country both as a headline act and in support of some big name bands (including The Skids, The Undertones, Richie Ramone, Chameleons Vox, Penetration and The Membranes), they have also played at Rebellion for the last two years and The Great British Alternative Festival. Klammer are intent on consolidating their position as one of the country’s finest live Post Punk acts.
Writing of the 4t h album is under way and but in the meantime they are releasing their version of The Human League’s early classic single “Being Boiled” on June 3rd 2019.
