Das Sexy Clap are a duo hailing from my hometown of Worcester, comprising of Chris Wemyss and musical partner Katy Birch.
Now If you’re from around these parts you will have no doubt seen powerhouse Chris bashing the living daylights out of his drum kit for the likes of local faves And What Will Be Left Of Them, EvilWitch and Joe Patroni to name but three, however his latest project, Das Sexy Clap sees Chris storm the stage throttle the singer and take over as the frontman and guitarist, whilst Katy takes up the vacant drum stool helping create one of the most potent sound in the Midlands right now.
Massive raw rock riffs collide with pummeled beats as Das Sexy Clap create a gigantic wall of filthy primal rock, a feral yet infectious sound that’ll have the weak minded scamper for cover whilst the creatures of the night take to the dance floor and twist new shapes to the duo’s frantic garage rock.
The EP opens with the nigh on three minute statement of intent, Push It In Break It Off, a delicious slab of molten rock that begins with a wall of feedback adds a nasty surf like riff before twisting into a huge holler along chorus and barrage of beats, that’ll have you rutting along before the end of the very first spin. Put It Out Yeah follows and proves that Das Sexy Clap are no one trick pony as Chris howls and growls as Das Sexy Clap deliver a groove-laden monster anthem complete with a sudden stop-start, a killer vocal hook and more attitude than most bands can muster in a life time.
The three-track EP closes with the meaty and metallic 12 Year Itch and with it the band manage to deliver their rawest and dirtiest cut to date with Chris and Katy whipping up a storm with a flood of pulsating beats and an orgy of riffs, whilst the vocals are delivered with an intensity that would shame the entire hardcore scene.
So So Sick is more than just a debut, it’s a call to arms, we will no longer be satisfied with wishy washy landfill indie, we demand cranked up amps, battered beats and howling primal vocals, we demand contagious rock, we demand Das Sexy Clap.
