“They go by the name of “Clear Tears”, that is their debut “Seize”. Make sure you keep an eye out, they’re a live force to be reckoned with; Clear Tears, remember that name.” – Milo Eastwood – PBS Breakfast Spread
Following the release of two superb singles, independent record label Tremorverse Records are thrilled to finally reveal the entirety of the highly anticipated second compilation album, Two, due for release Monday 7 October. The new album comes after the success of the label’s debut release, One in 2018, featuring an impressive selection of diverse acts including Hobson’s Bay Coast Guard, Girl Germs, The Grogans, Dr Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy and more.
Two crosses genre boundaries, bringing the sounds of jazz, hip hop, indie rock, folk and more together on one LP for listener’s eclectic delight. Previously released singles ‘Stationary’ by Birdsnake Ft POOKIE, FL-Smiley and N’fa Jones and ‘Open The Door’ by Diamonds of Neptune have been making waves for the compilation with playlist adds to FBI Radio and Syn FM.
The latest single to be lifted from the forthcoming album, ‘Seize’ courtesy of five-piece Clear Tears sees the album depart from the sounds of ‘Stationary’ and ‘Open the Door’ and pivot towards non-traditional, non-colonial country. The band’s debut single ‘Seize’ encapsulates the bands cross between country, punk, noise, and roadhouse. Two truly has something for everyone. Clear Tears’ lead singer Kane Anthony says of the track “Seize was written when I’d first encountered seizures in my life. It represents a departure from bad habits”. Alongside his deep vocals, Anthony also lends his skills as producer and engineer to the track with Caleb Carl Lindner taking on the single’s mastering.
