clanns are a post-rock band whose trademark sound is that of anguished ethereal anthems. Their ambition in music is to create a sound of pure minimalist aesthetic and this trait has allowed them the freedom to explore varying arrangements both on record and on a live stage.
clanns comprise of Charlie Doherty (vocals/rhythm guitar) his brothers Al & Conal (lead guitar/bass) along with Jason Nee (drums/percussion). This diverse sound features guitars drenched in reverb & delay aligned with melodic bow arrangements which combine to form moments which have explosive endings.
The band have recorded and released a 5 track EP in Attica Studios titled ‘Make Me a Child’, which saw it’s premiere at this years Distorted Perspectives Festival where they headlined the closing night of the festival to a packed venue.
“A sound drenched in delay & reverb that immediately takes you outside of yourself” – Stephen Mc Cauley, BBC Radio Ulster
