Clandestines - indie rock from Malta

Clandestines

There are a few places in the world which seem to have an inordinate number of top quality emerging bands and Malta is one such location. For those of you who have transitioned from the old Indie Bands Blog website will know all to well regular features occur of bands from Malta. Clandestines add to that list with their raw and ready sound which could as-well be at home in the USA as in Europe.


A delightful smattering of reverbed and echoed guitar gives a hint of shoegaze without the material loosing the harsher rock edges. The trio who have been together for about three years now are equally adept at slowing the music down and allowing the shimmering guitars to float majestically to the surface as they are at leaving the percussion to hustle the creations in a flailing of energy.

Their debut nine track LP is set for release on the 6th December – Saturday As Usual – which is a fine testament to their ability.
