Cleared for posting/sharing: The Clydes – “Broken Boy”
The video premiered via Songwriting Magazine where The Clydes detailed, “This song started with Christmas lights. Brian, our guitarist, went driving one night to look at them and came back inspired to write this music. So he played it for Brent, our singer, and Brent immediately had a vision of someone lying brokenhearted on the floor like a crumbled puppet — but yearning for a new lease on life. It became the opening track on our latest album. And we’re especially proud of how the layers of guitars and vocals weave together.”
NJ-based rockers The Clydes
Release new album, So The Story Goes
Out now via Mint 400 Records
“…the band has played with myriad styles and influences but has never pulled together quite as cohesive vision as crafted on their forthcoming LP, So The Story Goes.” – Impose Magazine
“We’ve been on The Clydes beat since late 2013 and just like a fine wine, they’re only getting better as time goes on.” – Speak Into My Good Eye

(Brooklyn, NY) Not unlike many bands comprised of direct family members, The Clydes were formed with a lifelong reverence for the classic rock stylings played during amber-hued days gone by. That sense of warmth in sound established by brothers Brent (lead vox, rhythm guitars, keys) and Brian Johnson (lead guitars, keyboards, effects) serves as the aural base for them to explore everything from complex personal relationships to narrative fantasy in equal measure. Joined by Andrew Lord Chandler (bass, keys, backing vox) and MadMardigan (drums, backing vox), The Clydes recently released their most complete vision to date.
So The Story Goes, a ten track full-length from The Clydes, is out now via Mint 400 Records.
As always, Brent and Brian wrote the songs including ones that focus on emotional and personal conundrums (like “Holly Speaks,” about feeling motionless but wanting more) and songs about non-traditional topics (like “The Vampire Of Hanover,” about a German serial killer from the early 20th century).
