CLOVES Releases New Track "Wasted Time"

CLOVES RELEASES NEW TRACK
“WASTED TIME”

U.S. DATES CONFIRMED SUPPORTING GRETA VAN FLEET IN JULY ON SOLD OUT TOUR
CLOVES, the acclaimed London via-Melbourne singer/songwriter releases her new track today, “Wasted Time” via Interscope Records. Listen here. The moody, haunting song was written by CLOVES and Justin Parker (Rihanna, Lana Del Rey).  

CLOVES explains, “’Wasted Time’ is about that inner voice that tells you mid-conversation with someone that maybe you’re boring them or they don’t like you.  ‘The only place I wanna go is anywhere there’s people I don’t know’ is one of my favorite lyrics. To truly find self-confidence and self-esteem is difficult for many people, myself included. It takes constant work to not be self-critical. ‘Wasted Time’ is about those internal conversations.”

“Wasted Time” follows her most recent track, "Bringing the House Down," released earlier this year.  Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Adele, Vampire Weekend), it had its first play on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe, who was “floored” upon his initial listen.   The music video was directed by Sophie Muller (Beyoncé, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani) and premiered with Harper's BAZAAR who raved, “get ready to fall in love with this soulful song.”  Watch it hereMahogany Session recently featured an intimate, live version of “Bringing the House Down” viewable here.   

CLOVES will be touring the globe kicking off this weekend at London’s All Points East Festival, alongside The XX, Lorde and LCD Soundsystem among others. Additional international festival appearances include Bergenfest in Norway (Father John Misty, Pale Waves, James Bay) PinkPop in the Netherlands (Foo Fighers, Bruno Mars, Noel Gallagher) and Electric Picnic in Ireland (Kendrick Lamar, Massive Attack, Dua Lipa). CLOVES will also headline shows in Europe and the UK, as well as her native- Australia, before making her way stateside for a sold-out tour supporting Great Van Fleet in July (full itinerary below). 

At this year’s SXSW, CLOVES was selected by Austin’s own American Statesman as one of the recommended acts to catch who said, “she’s about to move up the ranks fast,” and was featured in V Magazine’s SXSW “rising stars” highlights (click here) 2018 has also taken CLOVES to Sundance, and NYC for an “attention-grabbing” performance at Billboard’s “Industry Nights Showcase” and the annual pre-Grammy Roots Jam Session.  

CLOVES is prepping for her full-length debut album release, One Big Nothing coming later this summer on Interscope Records.  The record demonstrates an assurance and maturity beyond her years; an impressive progression from her lauded 2015 EP XIII, which landed her slots at the Coachella and Lollapalooza festivals and a track on the soundtrack to the 2016 film Me Before You. 

Paste proclaimed CLOVES “stands on the brink of becoming the next Adele (seriously—she’s that good),” with raves from Noisey who commented on the “lovelorn timelessness to her voice,” and Pigeons & Planes who said, “if the voice doesn’t get you, the lyrics will. CLOVES is aiming straight for the heart with her music, and she’s hit the mark every time.”
