Auckland band Clap Clap Riot are back with their brand new single Help Me.
The first exhibit from their colourful new LP, produced, engineered and mixed by audio wunderkind Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Popstrangers), Help Me is about the burden of keeping up with the pace of modern life, exploring the feelings of isolation that can come from feeling helpless and the longing to be somewhere else.
Built with a palpitating rhythm guitar, shiny keys, a taut rhythm section, possessed vocals, and all that we love from Clap Clap Riot, the single is the band’s first release since their Silver Scroll long-listed collab with Buzz Moller.
The track will have its live debut this September when the band hit the road with local pals Racing, bringing their frenetic stage presence to five of country’s centres, including two hometown shows to cater to both all ages and R18 audiences.
