Ever more intent on discovering the essence of indie, the Clientele are back with an album that dissolves like a daydream and aches like a jilted bride. These songs are heavy with an innocence that's painfully aware of its fleeting nature, slightly ominous but ever hopeful. Atmospheric guitarist and hushed vocalist Alistair MacLean offers Novocaine for a wounded soul. The title track has laid back and layered vocals that entice us into the quicksand melodies, evoking the pioneering spirit of the Byrds and the charm of the Beatles.

The hazy vocals and languid guitar combine for a sound that, while not overly inventive, is distinct in its A virtually perfect mood album. The hazy vocals and languid guitar combine for a sound that, while not overly inventive, is distinct in its own right. Think Belle and Sebastian with more distortion.

With ‘The Violet Hour’, The Clientele have made a beautifully haunting album of music to take drugs to make music to take drugs to. Not since David Gray’s latest yawn-epic, or the last time Cameron from ‘Big Brother’ opened his mouth, has something been so easy to drift off to sleep to. In this case, though, the pleasure’s really all ours. The Big Read – Amyl and The Sniffers: It’s rough, raw and anything can happen. Game Of Thrones' Missandei and Grey Worm.
