His Clancyness is a band formed by Jonathan Clancy, Jacopo Borazzo, Giulia Mazza and Nico Pasquini. Its debut album, Vicious, was published by FatCat Records, a Brighton-based British label that has also published and launched Sigur Ros, Animal Collective and No Age.
Vicious is a packed album, filled with highly detailed music and lyrics, diverse levels superimposed onto each other and penetrating into each other, post-punk and kraut beats, and glam rock, vocal folk music and noise. The band took the album on a world tour comprising of over 160 concerts in Europe and the United States. During the tour, the band also participated in festivals like SXSW, The Great Escape, All Tomorrow’s Parties, Le Guess Who?, and Eurosonic.
In 2016, the band will publish its second album, which was recorded only recently at Invada Studios, in Bristol, and at Suburban Home Studios, in Leeds.
Their first single, Pale Fear, will be released in June 2016. Its release was recently announced in a teaser.
