Describing themselves as somewhere between synthpop, electronic-pop, half-time beats, hip-hop and indie, Claire intially statrted off as three Munich-based young musicians and producers; Matthias Hauck, Nepomuk Heller and Florian Kiermaier. Singer/songwriter, Josie-Claire Bürkle joined at the beginning of 2012 and a drummer known as Fridl was later recruited for their live shows. The brilliant band we now know as Claire was finally formed!
We have ‘Broken Promised Land’ on repeat in the Indietronica office and you can thank BMW for introducing this track to us, as it has been featured on the advert for their new electric cars.
We aren’t really sure where to begin. This track is just so good. With its typically German-driving industrial beat and melodic vocals from Josie-Claire Bürkle, this is the ideal indietronica track that will make you feel sky high.
For good measure, we’ve posted the incredible Passion Pit remix of ‘Games’ below. It has also been added to our November playlist.
You can buy the ‘Broken Promised Land’ EP on iTunes now. Or we strongly recommend you bite the bullet and go for the whole album, ‘The Great Escape (special Edition)’, which was released in September 2013 and is also available for purchase on iTunes.
Sounds like: College, I BREAK HORSES, Bastille, Of Monsters and Men, CHRVCHES, Mausi, The Naked and Famous, Ladyhawke
