Over the last couple of months I have been introduced by many brilliant artists by the Pluggin Baby camp and I think these guys could be another one to add to the ever increasing list.
The guys in question are a band simply known as The Clox. The band came into being back in 2009 and they have been on an upward trajectory ever since. Coming out of New York but originally hailing from Kazakhstan Denis Orynbekov (Vocals/guitar) Igor Reznik (bass) and Ruslan Baimurzin (drums) are gathering quite a reputation online for the quality of their music and I have to say that it’s very much deserved.
This track ‘Jules Verne’ was originally released back in 2012 when it appeared on the EP of the same name but it has been given a new lease of life recently which has seen it getting radio play all over the place. The track itself is 3 minutes of indie rock of the highest quality. The melodies, and just the way that the track is put together really is first class. The main riff keeps the track ticking over nicely allowing the unique vocal from Orynbekov to do a lot of the heavy lifting. The beauty of this band is that while they fit snugly into the indie band bracket they have their own distinctive sound. Something which can’t be said for a lot of indie bands out right now.
The chorus has some nice sing-along value and the song as a whole is really quite catchy with the potential to get stuck in your head. As far as indie singles go, this really ticks all of the boxes; also from a more technical standpoint the production is pretty flawless. It’s nothing flashy the track just has a good crisp sound giving the bands talents the perfect opportunity to shine through.
‘Jules Verne’ improves with every listen and will have you humming along in no time, a very solid and very well rounded track that deserves a spot on your hard drive.
