"10 Great Bands from CMJ"

10. Clubfeet
Hometown: Melbourne, Australia
For Fans Of: Junior Boys, Hot Chip, Justice
Australia’s Clubfeet brought their brand of synth-pop to Piano’s on Wednesday afternoon, and while their sound isn’t particularly groundbreaking, it was still great fun. Fans of Junior Boys will dig their danceable grooves, and anyone with a sense of humor will smirk at the cheeky lyrics to “Teenage Suicide (Don’t Do It).”—Bonnie Stiernberg - Paste Magazine

"Album Review"

"Clubfeet's debut LP, Gold on Gold, is instantly charming, and at a time when so much middling synth-pop is floating around, that's worth a lot." - Pitchfork (7.7/10 album review) - Pitchfork

"Who are Clubfeet?"

Don't you love it when you discover something... something you think is cool... before everybody else? Introducing Clubfeet! Triple J - Triple J

"Clubfeet Releases New Album: Filter Q/A"

"Clubfeet have a salient ability to knock a pop song out flat. And it's all done in some of the most beautiful, rhythmic and tasteful ways imaginable." - Filter - Filter Magazine

"Clubfeet - Edge Of Extremes"

“I predict sex oozing from dancefloors in the near future! Clubfeet - Edge of Extremes (Who Killed JR Remix)’ – - Elbows Music Blog Aggregator

"Album Review"

“Clubfeet: Another Australian group that rides that raised bar as to what we expect from your upcoming group…. Their new video for “Edge of Extremes”, immediately sets the tone for Gold on Gold, the band’s debut release, with its slinky bass line, high/low vocal harmony, punchy drumbeat, and unabashed love for nostalgic, danceable pop…” - Vitalic Noise

"Album Review"

"It's not quite as debonair as Junior Boys, not quite as soulful as Hot Chip, and not quite as epic as fellow Melbournians Cut Copy. But all that 'not quite' somehow adds up to quite a bit. Gold on Gold is as satisfying a take on indie-dance as you're likely to hear until one of the aforementioned pacesetters drops a new album.” WLUR Radio - WLUR radio

"Clubfeet x Alex Goddard"

“Videographer Alex Goddard and Aussie band Clubfeet entitled Gold on Gold. As a collaboration between the two, they've hired the prettiest young things they could find to faff about on camera, artfully edited for a lush lo-fi feel. Melbourne-based Clubfeet's blend of daydream pop and indie summer vibes emanating from the new single sees remixes by French Horn Rebellion, Gomma's Munk, Plant Music's Danny Daze and Urchins.” Dazed Digital. - Dazed & Confused Digital

Quite possibly the Southern Hemisphere's best kept secret, Clubfeet is the holy union of five sons of Melbourne and Cape Town. Together, they create dreamy, melancholic indie-pop that sounds just as inspiring on a Monaco club floor on a Saturday night as it does on a lazy Sunday in a 1995 VW Golf soft-top cruising down the Amalfi Coast.

Forming around the turn of the decade, the five-piece are already being championed by the likes of Pitchfork (7.7), URB ('the makings of the next IT band'), Spin, Dazed, Filter, Discobelle and the like. In mid-2011, Clubfeet launched a video project (entitled Gold on Gold - in collaboration with acclaimed Sydney fashion videographer (and close friend) Alex Goddard, with monthly instalments throughout the second half of the year. Together, they curate an experimental, model sprinkled (and often NSFW) audio-visual feast.

Their tunes have been remixed by Dimitri from Paris, RAC, The C90s, Munk and Eli Escobar to name just a few, and Clubfeet have even been known to lend their remixing talents to the likes of Crystal Fighters and French Horn Rebellion on occasion.

Clubfeet make music for country clubs, crushed hearts, catwalks, casinos and convertibles. Pack an overnight Longchamp bag and jump aboard.
