After 12 months of working tirelessly in their own homemade studio, indie-pop quartet Clean Cut Kid return to the intimate stage of The Bodega for a sold-out show as part of their ‘Give Love’ tour and ahead of their upcoming second record.

After playing their own headline show at The Bodega earlier this year, Clean Cut Kid are back set to take on the much bigger stage of Rock City as they continue to support The Courteeners on their tour. The four- member band have shown their music so far to be pop. The fact they’re a four-person pop act would suggest a generic, uninspired style to their music, but that’s not the case.
