Mark your calendar, because June 14th is the day that CLAY RENDERING drop their new album California Black Vows via the always epic Hospital Productions. Their new song is a straight banger that I have had on repeat all day! It’s a perfect balance between the urban darkness and a sunny double rainbow. Both vocalists sound so good together I find myself immersed in their tones! Today we have been given the honor of sharing this soaring track with you in the form of a kick ass video. Make sure to catch CLAY RENDERING performing on June 14th at the Hospital Productions LA Showcase. Pre – order California Black Vows HERE.
California Black Vows chronicles the groups’ move away from the comfort zone straight into the dark heart of the west. Since their last album, the band relocated from the suburbs of the Midwest to Los Angeles. The cover’s icicle is the last remnant of their time in familiar surroundings. More change was to follow. A duo for most of its existence, Clay Rendering’s core of Mike and Tara Connelly chose to invite two allies into their closed circle. The enlisted are Sera Timms of Black Mare on bass and Joe Potts of Sollilja on drums. California Black Vows is the follow up to 2015’s Snowthorn, also on Hospital Productions.
A couple of EPs surfaced since the the last full length, but the band has spent most of that time molding the new four piece incarnation from the ground up and discovering the sounds and directions that new blood brings, while also acclimating to their new surreal setting. The result is a dimly lit journey into the wild nightside, where nothing is for sure. Where everything is tantalizing. Where Peg Entwistle appears thru a distant haze. Where the small hours creep by, never to return. Masks are off. A hypnotic trek into the center of Clay Rendering’s unique brand of gloom rock commences.
