BIO

Diane Jean’s quirky outlook buoys the Clever Girls’ writing, while Rob Slater, Tobias Sullivan and Winfield Holt deftly reinvent everything from percussive palettes to guitar melody. Together, the group creates hardhitting and masterful tunes, never slipping into diaristic monotony.  Above all, the music will live somewhere between straight forward rock and roll of bygone eras and dusty, moth eaten grunge pop.

Post Trash

“Dumb Smile” Premiere

“The music finds itself somewhere between WIlco and a fuzzier Breeders. Alt-country guitar roots are overshadowed by overdriving guitar rock power reminiscent of Pavement shining through towards the end.” - Stephen Veith, PostTrash

 

SEVEN DAYS

“With a charismatic front [person] and rock-solid instrumental lineup, Clever Girls seem poised to break out into the larger cultural landscape. We're lucky to have them in our backyard.” - Jordan Adams, Seven Days

IF IT’S TOO LOUD

“The first song off that album Luck, "Loom," is everything we loved about [the first ep] Loose Tooth, but more so. It's a little less Tom Petty style Americana than the songs off Loose Tooth, and is more like Tom Petty's more rock style but mixed with the Pixies's loud/quiet/loud alt-rock. It's one of those musical blends I never knew I️ needed, but from this day forward I'll be obsessed with.” - Ken, If Its Too Loud

Modern Mystery

CLEVER GIRLS have just premiered their new video for “Loom” via New Noise Magazine. Taken from their new release, Luck, the album  is out now.
