We of Clara’s Silence are driven to create a ballsy, powerful sound to satisfy the inspiration we have found in music. For some people, listening to is enough, for us, we must create it! Our chemistry is ideal and our jam space is a creative paradise!

Biography

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.

Lyrics

Bound Beauty

Written By: Clara's Silence

It’s all in my dreams,
so bold and ugly.
She whispers listen to me,
and I realize this vision I see is...

You’re bound,
bound up in my chains.
My blood ,
spills under your blade.
Your breath,
swells under my face.
This dance is love,
or is it hate?

When I reach out for you,
you just pull away.
When we touch,
there’s no place I would rather be.

Chorus x2

Mind’s alike justify,
never question, why?
Does it hurt so much?
Bound Beauty.

Want Without

Written By: Clara's Silence


Too many ways to travel I find
I find my mind it wanders outside
To a place that suits me better
To a place that I’ve defined
What’s inside?

Chorus
But then I lock it all away
Keep it locked inside for another day
If these things resurface you will meet somebody
Meet somebody new
Better hope it stays inside

And so you decide I’ve been unkind
At times I feel that I may go blind
And this place it suits me better
It’s a place that I’ve defined
What’s inside?

Chorus x2

Jaded

Written By: Clara's Silence

Used to follow around
An unfamiliar sound
A total mystery
Looking around and I can’t find the way
There
What’s there?
I stare right at you

Go away
Don’t go away
Please be the one to show me the way
There
What’s there?
You stare back at me

No fault don’t turn away
No blame don’t turn away
No fault don’t turn away
No blame and don’t you take me back there
What’s there?
I swear it kills me

You’ve got me locked up in a cage
Upon the shelf another page

This is the light
This is the fire
Bleed out the lies
Breed out the liars
You’d better find another line
You’d better find

Chorus
Jaded x 4

You’ve kept me locked up just in case
You say it’s just another phase.

This is the light
This is the fire
Bleed out the lies
Breed out the liars
You’d better find another line
You’d better find

Chorus
