Shannon and the Clams

Smart Aleck Kid
New York's most exciting band release their first new music since debut LP “Light Up Gold” came out at the beginning of the year. This track continues their cerebral take on Voidoids-esque gutter-rock.
Dark and somewhat sinister, this track was a stand-out at the South Londoners' recent dates with Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs.
