Stevie Cliff Releases ‘Hazy Head’ EP

‘Postcard From Queens’ is the first track to be released from Dublin native Stevie Cliff’s ‘Hazy Head’ EP.

Originally written over a summer spent living in the New York borough of Queens, the song is a nostalgic ode to the artist’s early twenties, serving as a musical postcard sent from past to present.

Lyrically ‘Postcard from Queens’ is a heartfelt offering which explores the fear of exposing flaws and vulnerability within relationships.

Cliff’s laidback vocals are contrasted nicely by gritty Grandmaster Flash, Bronx style hip-hop drums, warbling basslines, clean cut guitars and old school synths. The latter of which are a clear nod to the noticeable influence of French acts Phoenix and Air on the Dubliner’s sound.

When compared to 2017’s ‘Polaroids’ the lead track from the forthcoming 4 track EP definitely signals a shift to a more lo-fi sound with a noticeably more retro sonic palette.

Co-Produced by Cliff and Ciaran O’Shea (Cyclefly, Toy Soldier, The Frank & Walters) all tracks on the soon to be released ‘Hazy Head’ EP were mixed over 5 days in Berlin’s famous ARKTRAKTIV studio complex.

Initial recording sessions took place in Displace Studios in Dublin with Tom Lee at the helm, while further sessions happened at RCR Studios in Carlow with Recording Engineer Shayne Thomas Byrne also contributing additional guitars.

Mastering comes courtesy of Fergal Davis (Fight Like Apes, Republic of Loose, O Emperor)

The 4 track EP ‘Hazy Head’ is available to stream and download through all good digital outlets now.
