Liverpool’s thrilling fuzz-pop quartet Clean Cut Kid have announced details of their much-anticipated debut album. A string of exhilarating singles have given snapshots of their brilliance and now comes a record to match. Felt will be released on April 28th through Babe Magnet Records/Polydor and is available for pre-order from today. It will be preceded by a new single, Leaving You Behind, which has already received a Hottest Record accolade.

Clean Cut Kid are Mike Halls, Evelyn Halls, Saul Godman and Ross Higginson. The four-piece are one of the most exciting breakthrough bands in the UK, their inventive take on anthemic guitar-pop the product of intense writing and rehearsal sessions at the band’s practice space in Liverpool.

What emerges is a contemporary indie-pop record filled with defiant pop hooks and emotionally-charged fragility. The band say that ‘the concept of ‘Felt’ is the timeline of a break-up from a relationship falling apart as you reach the end of the A side of the record; to flip into the B side where we emerge from the breakup and back into a new relationship.’ It’s a record that drags the listener through the rollercoaster of emotions experienced during the end of one relationship and the beginning of another, songs with a voice that is refreshing and honest in a generation of emotional detachment. Felt is an album that deals with the hard truths and uplifting highs of modern love.

Clean Cut Kid will embark on a headline tour in April and May and will also head out in support of Brit Award-nominated troubadour Michael Kiwanuka in May. The dates for the band’s headline tour are:

28th April Glasgow King Tuts
