Comprised of four-time Grammy-winning producer Graham Marsh and writer & vocalist Amber Renee, CLAVVS has solidified themselves as the top ATL act to watch. After an impressive feature in the international TV series The Music Voyager alongside Janelle Monae (see a clip here), the duo was also named Best Progress Pop Act by Atlanta’s Creative Loafing, who note, “[CLAVVS’] potential for mainstream success is obvious.” CLAVVS’ signature brand of hypnotic trip hop has also been praised in myriad regional & international press, including Indietronica, Northern Transmissions, Atwood Magazine, and Ultimate Music. Every song from their last album also charted on Hypem.
CLAVVS boasts 130K+ Spotify and Soundcloud plays, as well as frequent radio play on Atlanta’s top alternative stations 99X, WRAS Album88 and Athens’ WUOG 90.5. Both halfblood singles “Throats” and “Sit You Down” are featured in American Apparel’s international in-store playlist, and “Spectre” is included in the in-store playlist for Old Navy. Their songs have also been featured on several Spotify official playlists including Fresh Finds and Hiptronix.
CLAVVS’ striking live performance is high-energy and engaging. Bullet Music calls vocalist Amber Renee “a beast of a performer,” and their show, “rousing [and] passionate.” This summer, the duo amped up crowds for Ibeyi (XL), Baio (Glassnote), and Ages and Ages (Partisan) and will support Rhye (Polydor) at Terminal West in Atlanta on November 14th (tickets here).
“Bloom,” the third single from CLAVVS’ sophomore album World Underwater, is a salient, lush dance of resonant drums, vintage synths and tripped out jungle noises. These latest releases suggest that the duo is navigating further into their signature territory of dark, hypnotic alt pop and ATL-inspired trip hop– a singular sound that CLAVVS has made all their own.
