Kiwi Rock Soundcheck 27/07/2021

Auckland five-piece Clap Clap Riot revealed their brand-new single ‘It’s Alright’ will be out on Friday, July 16

Clap Clap Riot raises the bar on ‘It’s Alright’ - a short, firecracker of fuzz pop all about “our ability to overthink things”. Recorded live at the Lab Studios with Tom Healy on production duties, ‘It’s Alright’ reinforces the band’s reputation for turning out rollicking classic guitar pop, with raw and energetic songwriting and sets the scene for the release of their fourth album due out in the first half of 2022.

It marks an exciting new phase in the life of Clap Clap Riot, which has chalked up an impressive list of achievements and accolades since turning heads with their debut record COUNTING SPINS in 2012NOBODY / EVERYBODY (2014) and DULL LIFE (2017) followed, firming up the band’s place as one of the most exciting forces in the local music scene. 

Their highly energized live shows have also seen them sell-out shows across New Zealand and tour a number of times across the ditch. They were selected to tour the country with Alt-J, have played alongside The 1975Jimmy Eat World and Manchester Orchestraand appeared at festivals Rhythm and VinesBig Day OutHomegrown and Splore.
