When Cambridge based Twelve Clay Feet released their debut album Totem Bells, mixed by Fraser Smith (Ian Brown / Shed Seven), in February 2012 it was met with high praise. Drawing comparisons to the early sounds of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and even Radiohead - owing much to vocalist / guitarist Ian Jeffs’ appreciation of classic songwriting and his uniquely gruff vocals (Robert Plant / Mark Lanegan) – they were deservedly noted for their grandiose, ambitious approach. The band’s roots stretch back to the womb, with twins Ian Jeffs (lead vocals) and Jay Jeffs (lead guitar), who joined forces with Ollie Porsa (bass) and Bob Radford (drums) and started the band in 2011.


Now releasing their second album 'More Naked Than Obscene', preceded by the bustling, evocative, forthcoming 7” single 'Hailstones' (23rd September 2013) we re-join Twelve Clay Feet in an energetic mood. From the first track their sound is as muscular as it ever was, yet always careful to keep melody at the core. More Naked Than Obscene proves a master-class in the re-imagination of key influences, while leaving a lasting watermark of its own. Stadium-sized opening track By The Station Light, with its bleak depiction of characters of-the-night, is soon swallowed up by the insistent Rags & Bones and rock n roll bravado of Wrecking Ball. Elsewhere on the record, Electric Pulse keeps the pace alive – it's an album that never loses steam.

Already receiving comparisons to Kings Of Leon, Brian Jones Town Massacre and John Spencer, the band are picking up a cult underground following - a starting point from which the critics agree, should soon see them secure their well-deserved place in the ‘big adoring limelight’. Previous releases have been supported with sold out shows at The 100 Club, Liverpool’s Cavern Club and Birmingham’s 02 Academy. They also performed on the radio 1 backed Transit Tour. Twelve Clay Feet will soon be announcing additional UK tour dates this Winter.
