Giacomo D'Attorre - lead singer of Clever Square - has been through a lot of late. With his band. In his personal life. Even just with the state of the world. This fire has fuelled Clever Square's new record Secret Alliance, eleven tracks that explore feelings of frustration, disillusionment, and disconnection, and chronicle what it's like to be swept along by a world that "gets noisier everyday".. Guitar lines gently bloom, Fender Rhodes organ is sprinkled throughout, and the acoustic strumming sounds easy and unhurried. From the relaxed bustle and acoustic picking of 'Hail The Proper Karl', to the joyous, bouncy 'Little Flaws'; from the stripped back melancholy of 'Obsolete Epsilons' to the arena-ready vibes of indie classic 'Golden Wires', D'Attorre has crafted a spell-binding, mesmerizing set of songs that delight on first listen and reward deeper inspection. "It's a hymn to privacy, to the joys of secrecy, and solitude," he says of Secret Alliance. That he wraps such heartfelt, profound topics in gloriously laid-back indie adds to the charm, and cements Clever Square's status as one of Italy's finest contemporary bands. The world might seem increasingly complex and be spinning ever faster, but Secret Alliance slows it down just enough to savour the scenery and think about charting a path back to something a little more manageable.
