Clark : "Silent Night"

Christmas is, incredibly, almost upon us (how time flies!), so getting with the spirit, here is a christmas flavoured song from Lompoc, USA 3-piece Clark. The Clark guys kindly donated both an acoustic version and a full band version of a reworking of "Silent Night".

Spurred on by the tragic death of a band member in their dream-rock outfit Widescreen Reason, the Clark project has allowed the remaining members to take a break and focus their talents on more sombre and reflective acoustic moments.

Influenced by the likes of Sufjan Stevens (who also has a major Christmas themed output), Elliott Smith, Red House Painters and Simon & Garfunkel. 60's pop harmonies are blended to give a sound that recalls another husband and wife team, Low.

The band have also seen the likes of Kiefer Sutherland attend one of their shows (when he is not saving the world from nuclear meltdown!) and were given this accolade.

"a collection of personal (yet accesible) tales of love, loss and rebirth...."

Clark's music also reflects a real sense of hope and beauty that can be heard in both version of their wonderful take on "Silent Night". Find out more about these recordings here.
