And Now For Something Different: Steven A. Clark
This song is a little bit outside of what I normally post on here; it’s neither jangly nor surfy nor folksy. Instead, Steven A. Clark brings to the table what sounds to me like new wave pop with touches of hip hop influence. In this new single, “Can’t Have,” I’m definitely reminded of Twin Shadow‘s sound here, but the synths and percussion feel closer and louder in the overall mix, giving the track a huge sound. Not to mention the track is dance ready: you’ll find yourself nodding along to the whole thing if you’re not careful. If you like what you’re hearing, look out for The Lonely Roller, Clark’s upcoming LP, which is due out September 18th via Secretly Canadian.
