Clubfeet: Feet First

After a big start to 2013, Clubfeet are set to go to the next level on their first national headline tour.

The Sydney electro-pop outfit released their debut album, ‘Heirs And Graces’, to much applause earlier in the year, and are relishing their newfound exposure.

"It's been a great year so far," says lead vocalist/ guitarist Sebastian Cohen. "Everything that we've wanted to achieve we've done, and done really well. We were thrilled to get a lot of support from radio across the board and are very happy with the album."

The five-piece are renowned for their work ethic on the road, so it's difficult to imagine how they get the time to write such dense and heavily layered songs.

"We write pretty sporadically at times, but we're always writing something. I think it's just our approach to this type of thing. I've always called Yves [bass/ co-songwriter] the hit machine — he can just sit down and write songs wherever and be successful every time. He knows how to get what he wants.

"Me, on the other hand, I never have something in mind, I just write because I almost need to. I do go through periods where I hate everything I do, but that's just my method. I write a lot of work but might only get a little bit out of it. “

Moving to Australia in 2006 from South Africa, Sebastian hasn't looked back. He remembers an important band from that time which sparked a shift in his tastes.

"I had just come out of a period where I was only listening to electronic and dance music, and it was around then that I got stuck into Arcade Fire and their first album, ‘Funeral’. Along with Broken Social Scene that caused a definite shift in my tastes. I think our debut reflects that; more electronic sounds mixed with organic sounds."

Much has been said about Clubfeet's live shows, but Sebastian insists it's all a natural process.

"It's something that has definitely evolved naturally to where it is. When there was only three of us we didn't really know what we were doing, but now that we have five the live show has come a long way. It's at a stage where it's just exciting and lots of fun to play the songs live and feel confident about it."

Clubfeet play Oh Hello July 18. ‘Heirs & Graces’ is out now.
