“One Of 2012’s Most Impressive Releases,” SPIN Magazine
Hailed as one of SPIN Magazines’ “Most Impressive Releases,” one of “CMJ’s Most Talented 10,” and one of the “5 Best New Artists for October ’12,” Steven A. Clark has made waves with his recently released Fornication Under the Consent of the King, the follow up album to his 2010, critically acclaimed STRIPES. F.U.C.K., represents his progression in both his musical and personal life, showcasing a new level of maturity in his songwriting. Steven A. Clark will take his synth-kissed sound on the road with a few dates along the east coast.
Alongside Frank Ocean and The Weeknd, the Fayetville, North Carolina native is a top forerunner in the Future RnB movement, spearheading a confident and new type of indie-rock and hip hop infused rhythm and blues that belies their young age. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Clark’s songwriting reflects his absolute acceptance of the effects of love, including the adoration and despise, bliss and pain, and drinking and drugs. Building on the self-produced, written, and performed sound of STRIPES, Clark cuts away niceties and digging into the core of his personal afflictions with F.U.C.K.
