EP Premiere: Si Clancy – Lost In The Machine

Tomorrow, on September 1st, folk-pop singer-songwriter Si Clancy releases his new, Lost In The Machine EP. However, today we’re delighted to bring you an early premiere of this stunning release, full of soulful, confessional folk with lush string arrangements

Take a listen below…

Following support from BBC Introducing for his debut EP release That’s All and stellar performances at London’s Barbican Centre and on various festival stages, Leicester singer-songwriter Si Clancy is back with a new set of songs. The Lost In The Machine EP contains three, new folk-pop tracks mastered at the historic Abbey Road Studios

“In What’ll It Be, a new friendship is twisted into a bittersweet sense of uncertainty amidst the machine of the mundane and the mire of daily routine and responsibility,” explains Clancy. “That idea is where the title of the EP germinated. The uncertainty leads to bitterness, leads to distance, and ultimately to self-doubt, hostility and a host of questions about where you go from here”

Influenced by fellow troubadours Bruce Springsteen, Damien Rice and Glen Hansard, Clancy’s songs are emotionally direct and driven by lush instrumentation that draws on folk, classical and rock. To get the full band sound he wanted for this EP, the singer-songwriter assembled a talented group of players to flesh out his new songs – musicians who’ve played with Badly Drawn Boy, Travis, Natalie Imbruglia and Anna Calvi amongst others – and utilised the vast experience of Abbey Road engineers to give the songs a widescreen power and polish
