The EP White Claw consists of four records squashed into one. And it’s very interesting, even before you get to the remixes.
Hailing from Douglas on the Isle of Man, Phil Reynolds has created one of the most unusual concept records we’ve ever come across. In his words, “White Claw consists of four songs, banded together as one. It’s a story about a lonely crayfish (the last of his kind) who sets out to find love with the help of mythical witches who’ve been frozen into standing stones. As you do. It was performed, with no sequencing (apart from the drums, obviously), entirely on the following instruments, some of which were found in junkshops and none of which cost more than £30”.
And we’ve no reason to doubt any of that.
Each of the four tracks has been remixed and also appear on the EP and it’s the Isvisible reinterpretation of the title track that really flicked our switches.
Proceeds of the EP go to Refugee Action.
