Snowthorn is the long awaited debut album from Mike and Tara Connelly, recording together as Clay Rendering.
Clay Rendering came to life in 2013 and have since released a trio of singles for Hospital Productions that have gained them the admiration of followers spanning both electronic and metal communities through relentless quad-seasonal touring.
Their material occupies unique terrain, recalling The Cure’s widescreen Disintegration-era instrumentals, cut through with a Folk/Dark Metal palette and an appreciation of electronic music that imbues their production with an end-of-world quality that’s impossible to pin down. One moment, you find yourself in a smoke-filled, strobe-lit Road House the next; bleary-eyed, head spinning, coming down. A flame lit close to autumn come winter.
Clay Rendering will perform a special one off european show as part of Transmissions Festival VIII on November 27th, 2015 in Ravenna, Italy curated by Nico Vascellari.
