Fuzzy indie guitar driven bliss
One of Scotland’s best-kept musical secrets, Charlie Clark is a multi-talented songwriter, musician, promoter and more.
First rising to prominence as a founding member of acclaimed Glasgow indie-pop foursome Astrid, Clark has been a pro-active presence in the underground music scene for over two decades. From his role in Scottish supergroup The Reindeer Section to his own projects Broken Arrow and MJ12, Clark has earned a cult status amongst public and peers alike, becoming a go-to guest musician to the likes of Mogwai, Arab Strap and Snow Patrol in the process.
Back in Scotland after a stretch in LA as one of the city’s best regarded promoters, he is currently sharing his talents as a full-time booker at Glasgow’s legendary Nice N Sleazy venue, whilst also organising a 3 day Festival to take palace on Lewis in 2023. Reforming Astrid for new music and a whistlestop tour at the beginning of 2022, Charlie is now putting his solo hat once more to bring us his long-awaited debut solo album: ‘Late Night Drinking’ before the year is out.
Recorded and produced by Jason Shaw (Cambodian Space Project) and mastered by Mark Gardener from RIDE, the duo offer their expertise on an album studded with effervescent alternative-rock songs, shoegaze-tinted sonics, and vividly relatable lyricism.
