The Klares – Black Huarache 
The Klares - Black Huarache

Ferocious. That’s the word that immediately springs to mind when Irish lads The Klares kick this track off at 100 mph. Imagine Keith Moon drumming for the Arctic Monkeys while Iggy Pop demands more, more, more from the production booth and that’s something like the energy you can expect from new single ‘Black Huarache’ (NB I had to look up huarache – it’s a Mexican sandal by all accounts). The effervescence of youth runs through this track like letters through a stick of rock but those letters would spell out F.U.C.K.Y.O.U. as the bands punkish attitude is only tamed by their own ability to bring the song back to a point of melody when it suits them. Three minutes, ten seconds and a whole of exuberance makes this a great track and one that no doubt kicks things off when these boys play live. Today Dublin, tomorrow – your daughter’s bedroom window. Fair warning.

Live Dates:
