CLARK & THE COMMUNITY
Clark & The Community follows the adventurous mind of Chicago-based producer, composer, singer and songwriter, Chris Clark.
Although introduced to many via a string of Bandcamp-based oddities and his inclusion on the 2016 Stones Throw Sofie’s SOS Tape compilation, Clark has been making music since his early teenage experimentations with beat tapes and hip hop. Over time, Clark’s sound has developed into an amorphous marriage of soul, psych jazz, electronica, avant-garde and the further unknown. Sonic cues from his youth within the church also worm their way into arrangements where densely-layered, vocal acrobatics regularly become his ‘community’.
Most recently, Clark & The Community collaborated with prolific LA/Philadelphia-based producer, Swarvy, on “So Bad” — a slow-paced, guitar-laden groove which came out on Strange Neighbor in October 2017. 2018 promises new music via London’s club night-come-label, Bone Soda.
