"Clara's Silence"

"Local newcomers Clara's Silence bring an in-your-face attitude to the alternative rock scene. Combining entertaining live shows with an affinity for traditional hard-rock ethics, Clara's Silence hit the ground running.

“Bound Beauty” bursts off the five song EP with pounding drums and raucous vocals, while follow-up “Jaded” starts softer, with a single guitar and hints of chugging riffs, before the metal undercurrents finally take hold. Standout “Understudy” uses relentless drums and rolling bass lines to keep the momentum while the lead man sings, “Send me loose from this abuse/It’s a game and I don’t wanna play anymore.”

Lead man Nathan varies his vocal technique on “Want Without” by rattling off words in rapid succession and ”Slow Motion Ocean” finishes off the brisk, 18-minute playtime with a straight forward, but successful rock effort.

Women, break-ups and paranoia seem to make up the bulk of the themes presented. The unyielding drums, methodical bass lines and vocals seem to hold strong throughout, and while not breaking the mould per se, the band shows promise withing their chemistry and technical proficiency."

Nov/2010 Demo

EP January 2012



Clara’s Silence is an intense expression of creativity and musical influence. Inspiration has taken hold of this fine Calgary band and the result is a collection of ballsy and catchy numbers with swagger and style. Influenced by acts like Bad Religion, Led Zeppelin, Deftones, and Queens of the Stone Age, Clara’s Silence brings a very decent offering to the alternative rock community.

Live, Clara’s Silence has proven time and time again to be a strong act. The thundering combination of Shand’s rip roaring drums and Ryan’s gut pumping bass is equaled only by Ben’s slick guitar licks. As for the vocals, if Nathan’s aggressive baritone doesn’t grab you then surely his dance moves will! Together, they’ve created an entertaining show that quickens the pulse.

Clara’s Silence formed in the summer of 2010. With unusual chemistry, they quickly recorded a three song demo and built a solid set list. With continued success, Clara's Silence topped off 2011 with their debut self-titled EP. The EP will be released in the summer of 2012. Today the boys in Clara's Silence are very excited to have been selected to play Alberta's Own 11th Annual Indie Festival this August 2012.
