Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated today to Dom Clark Trio. We stumble upon this amazing trio while surfing the net and we instantly loved the folk style and the amazing sounds they are using in their productions.
The first thing that struck me about this trio is the sound, very real. I really like how the instruments are recorded, it’s like listening to the band live.
The quality of the performance and the music is very high.
It seems to go back to the roots listening to Dom Clark’s music, vintage vibes with no room for beats, and other electronic stuff. This is real music made by good musicians and real instruments. One of the things that I miss most in modern music is the use of real sounds.
This is the kind of music we need nowadays.
a journey into traditions, direct and true music
Dom Clark Trio are Dom Clark (vocals/guitar/trumpet), Conor Cotterill (bass) and Enmanuel Moreno (drums/percussion).
The group formed in February 2017 and by December of the same year played the O2 Academy Islington and gained BBC airplay for debut single ‘Undercover’.
2018 saw the group release three more singles with more BBC radio play and develop a reputation for blistering live shows with trumpet, drum breaks and improvisation, including headlining the Leytonstone Festival and a takeover of Boogaloo Radio.
In the autumn of 2018 the group built their own Mustard Seed studio from which to launch the next phase of their career. The first fruits of the new studio came with a double A side Nomadic/Yes Man released in January 2019 with Yes Man being added to the BBC 6Music Introducing Mixtape and being singled out for play on the Tom Robinson show.
