// sunday music: i am kloot

One of the very first bands i ever saw live were i am kloot, a beautifully melancholy band from Manchester who introduced every song they played as being about “disaster”.

“This next song is about bad weather… and disaster.”

“This next song is about Manchester. And disaster.”

Needless to say, i have loved them ever since (and they completely blew Turin Brakes, who they were supporting that night, off-stage). Their latest album, “sky at night”, was nominated for a Mercury prize this year, and is completely awesome. If you don’t believe me, listen to “fingerprints” and “to the brink”.

They call it “beat-up romanticism”.
