Kacy and Clayton tour Europe supporting Daniel Romano

25-05-2016

The music of Kacy and Clayton exists outside of time, and burgeons with beautiful contradictions. It’s psychedelic and traditional, contemporary and vintage, melancholic and joyous. All at once, it showcases a slightly psych-folk sound of Linda Perhacs, Fleet Foxes, and First Aid Kit; rare country blues records and English folk tunes; and 1920s disaster songs and murder ballads. Their songs often are sugar-coated pills, tales of murderous jealousy, dilapidated graveyards, and infanticide, all delivered with Kacy Anderson’s (19) sweet, lithe voice, and Clayton Linthicum (21)’s hypnotic fingerpicking.

Kacy and Clayton are second cousins who hail from the Wood Mountain uplands of Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. Strange Country, their third album "Strange Country", finds the duo honing their songcraft and building on, rather than replicating, the tradition of British folk they love so much. Produced by Shuyler Jansen of the Deep Dark Woods, the album was recorded over seven freezing Canadian winter days last year at Ghetto Box Studios, a historic community hall turned studio. It was released at the beginning of this month through New West Records.

Starting tomorrow Kacy and Clayton will team up with label mates Daniel Romano on an extensive European tour - their first one ever on this side of the Atlantic:
