Alternative rock outfit Conflict Choir share new artistic single ‘Don’t Let Me Drown’
West Midlands alternative rock band Conflict Choir started out as a band for frontman Ali Clinton’s solo project, but quickly became a much deeper connection.
The trio consists of some of the UK’s most diverse session musicians, Ali Clinton, George Cook and Jack Bowles, twisting through multiple genres from rock, R&B, pop, electronic, jazz, metal and many more.
“Don’t Let Me Drown” is their latest body of work, taken from the forthcoming album ‘Strange Game”. Sounding like the lovechild of Muse, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley, the astonishing single sounds like an instant classic.
Receiving previous support from BBC Introducing, playing venues around Birmingham and Brighton, the group have built a strong fanbase ever since their creation before the pandemic.
Speaking about the single and upcoming album, Conflict Choir share: “This is a single from our full album ‘Strange Game’, which will be released single by single throughout the year.
Each single wil have alternative versions that we will sometimes release online but will reserve special versions only available as physical copies for liveshows – something for hardcore fans to dig their teeth into. We’re looking to release a visual representation of our world with each single to immersive the audience even further.”
Turning the pandemic into something positive, the turbulent time and constraining experience gave the band numerous sources of material to write about. ‘Strange Game’ has a heavy mental health theme throughout yet questions philsophical pondering, dystopian outlooks and abuse.
Speaking further on the album, Conflict Choir’s frontman Ali Clinton adds: “This album is a mirror of the struggles of living in today’s times through sonic poetry and texture.”
