THE BAND: And now for something completely different. The Cliks’ new album Snakehouse (from Kindling Records/Warner Music Canada) reveals a band of such primal power and unguarded emotionality that it will take your breath away. “Oh yeah, oh yeah, I’ve fallen down/But I can get up,” sings Lucas Silveira in a voice at once scarred and defiant, over a pummeling rhythm section and a guitar riff of barely controlled fury. This unambiguous declaration kicks off “Oh Yeah,” one of 10 fiercely expressive tracks on Snakehouse, and it could serve as the credo of the Toronto trio, as well as summing up the personal narrative of Silveira, a writer/singer/guitarist of uncommon talent and audacity.
On Snakehouse, The Cliks have created something mysterious yet transparent, specific yet universal, timeless yet intoxicatingly new. This is music that seems to emanate from a parallel universe, one where fundamental distinctions are blurred, living passionately is the highest level of existence and rock & roll is the ultimate form of expression.
