The Clause are a 4 piece alternative group from Birmingham founded by school friends Pearce Macca (Frontman), Niall Fennell (Drummer) and Jonny Fyffe (Bassist), later joined by Liam Deakin (Guitarist) at the start of 2016 to complete the line up. Described as having a 60’s swagger with an 80’s groove and a 90’s attack, still taking inspiration from the big choruses in current Indie Rock records.
With a handful of singles under their name hailing at around 500,000 hundred thousand streams across all platforms, a string of hometown sell outs including the Institute 2 to a sell out crowd of 550 fans, The Clause pride themselves on their large success, having released all songs independently, with no large radio play, festival slots, sponsors, Label, Agent or Manager.
After selling out their hometown intimate show, where 150 tickets flew out in just short of 2 days, they embarked on a debut headline tour of 4 dates, selling out in Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham with the majority being self promoted.
Counteract (Pigeon Detectives Support slot) – “Young band The Clause kicked the evening off at a relatively early 6.30pm. There is obviously a lot of buzz around this band at the minute, with a respectable queue snaking out the O2 Institute’s door and down Digbeth High Street at 6pm.”
BBC INTRODUCING WM, Jack Parker – “I saw The Clause for the first time on Friday, and I was really impressed”.
Sean Myles (Reviewer / Photographer – “ Listen to them for the first time at Broadcast during this gig and they were absolutely immense Live”
Birmingham Review (First act on a 5 band bill at the Castle & Falcon) – “The Clause were the first band of the night, and for me they were the biggest highlight. Distinctive, original, playful”
