Released: 28.07.23






I remember where I was when I first heard We Could Walk Together and Reflections After Jane, laying on the grass in The Meadows in Edinburgh, lost in their meanders through perfect images of love, loneliness, alienation and the city.

I Am Not There Anymore by The Clientele weaves a similar silken thread of reflective, gentle and elegiac ballads, echoes of familiar refrains and beautiful chord changes punctuated with chamber pop, cello and beats broken by jazz, classical inflections and spoken word. Highlights include Fables Of The Silverlink, Garden Eye Mantra, Lady Grey and the Lennon-esque Dying In May.
