Klammer - Invitation Only Gig - The Rehearsal Rooms - Huddersfield 2020
Live Review by Kevin Stevens for Refections of Darkness Music Magazine
"... Set two was a trip into the unknown, they hadn’t shared any details with me on the direction of the new material - was it the KLAMMER I know and love? Or had they pushed the boundaries? As the first chords hit my ears I am pleased to tell you the KLAMMER sound and vibe is still intact! However after listening to the twelve new tracks, still in a (late) stage of development, its plain to hear that the band have shifted into new territory without leaving the KLAMMER sound behind. It’s still got the raw edge and the energy that they have managed to drag kicking and screaming alongside them - but somehow sounds more “grown up”.

Here's what the critics are saying about the new single "Being Boiled"
"Look this is not ‘just’ a cover, it’s an interpretation, something that works, it works brilliantly"
"Full of hooks, driving energy, the unmistakeable vocals of Poss and a relentless guitar drenched mid-section courtesy of Steve Whitfield. As for covering another bands song and making it fit perfectly into the often hellish state of todays modern world Klammer have done a faultless job."
...and the album "You Have Been Processed"
"Rising stars in British alternative music... If you are a fan of Joy Division, The Damned, The Stranglers, Bauhaus, David Bowie, or any of the post-punk and alt-rock early classics, you’ll absolutely love Klammer’s new album “You Have Been Processed..."
"Many claim KLAMMER are the hottest UK post-punk offering in many years"

LOUDER THAN WAR:
"....Previously described as the love child of XTC and Gang Of Four, Klammer offer an enticing twist on the post-punk attitude, blending in elements of goth rock, punk rock and dark wave, all with dark pop sensibilities..."
LOCAL SOUND FOCUS:
"...This song from KLAMMER is gloriously wonderful, it’s epic, it’s huge. It’s engaging in a ‘sit down and listen to it’ way, and if you’re in the mood for dancing it’ll get you going absolutely crazy in seconds. I, for one, need stuff like this in my life..."
“Modern God” by Klammer Reviews:
LOUDER THAN WAR:
"This new single from Leeds-based post-punk quartet Klammer... it’s great melodic punk and there is an undercurrent of edginess and intrigue which makes you want to listen to more..."
