The digital tide is high. So Clash has created a digital issue to surf on the tallest waves of sound and culture. Launching with French pop lords Phoenix as cover stars, the Clash app, initially available on iPhone, is a celebration of our finer moments each month bundled up with a few more surprises that uncoated paper stock simply can’t deliver.
For example, download the edition to hear Phoenix’s new single as you wander through all our beautiful photos of Versailles’s finest young musical sons and discover how they are perched on a precipice of nihilistic quandary.
James Blake, our number one British bass crooner gets up close and personal discussing his lyrics on the seductive second album of ‘Overgrown’ revealing his inner battle for artistic honesty, the crushing weight of expectancy and the paranoia of becoming a ship gone off course.
We have a selection of scintillating new music from great new bands as our ‘Essential 10’ playlist zig zags from Bonobo, to Mount Kimbie, James Blake, Youth Lagoon, Romare, Parquet Courts and onto some cheeky secrets from the DFA stable.
Delve deeper to discover our usual blend of high-end street savvy fashion, our most highly recommended albums across specific genres and our best regular features bursting off the screen and into your life. Elsewhere, Steve Cropper from Booker T and the MG’s takes us through his tips on how to survive the music industry before Mani describes his last day on earth.
If we do say so ourselves, our App rocks. It glides more beautifully than Torvill and Dean on ice. It bounces to opinions faster than Will Self on a Friday. It packs a punch more weighty than Bruce Lee fighting a colony of angry walrus. With more music, photography, streams and video it's the handy pocket rocket that will gift you all the musical knowledge you’ll ever need. Whilst sitting on the bus.
