The Story So Far…
From false friends, to (temporary) sobriety, to lovable junkies, to the world’s worst public transport.
However you like your Celtic Punk ’n’ Roll, The Cloverhearts have you covered. Founded bAustralian frontman, Sam Cooper, the mission statement was always simple:
Blaring bagpipe anthems and twisted tin-whistle tunes.
Think ‘Dropkick Murphys meets Green Day’ and you’re right about there.
“I grew up listening to skate punk bands like NOFX and Millencolin, then found love in deeper
singer/songwriter stuff such as Fiona Apple and Elliot Smith who use more non-traditional
instrumentation in their music. When the opportunity arose to start a band focused around
Celtic instruments, I was trepidatious because it was so foreign to me… But in the end,
I think that naivety of blending 90’s punk with traditional instruments is what sets
The Cloverhearts apart.” Says Songwriter and Vocalist, Sam Cooper.
While the band certainly doesn’t sound like it’s Celtic-Punk-Counterparts, The Cloverhearts
are certainly no Celtic-Punk-Counterfeits. Having garnered over 3 Million Streams on Spotify
alone in just 3 years, supported genre giants such as The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats,
The Rumjacks and Mr. Irish Bastard, and landed prestigious festival appearances
at Mighty Sounds (Czech Republic), Panic Fest (France) and Feffarkhorn (Italy)… It’s no wonder
London Celtic Punks have crowned The Cloverhearts one of the scenes most “prolific”,
“hard working” and “highly original” new bands in Celtic Punk.
Now the pandemic’s in their rearview mirror, the band is back on the road, everywhere from
Bologna to Brno, promoting their latest release “Still Pissed”, with plans to enter the studio
in late 2023 and plenty more rock shows (and hangovers) in 2024 to boot.
“Sempf!” – “Mustard?” – “No SeMPf!” – “So that’s how you say it?” – “Yeah, exactly!” – Almost every conversation with almost every person who heard of the band Sempf for the first time was something like this. People often shouted: “That stands for semi-professional!”
But what exactly does a semi-professionally manufactured tube of Sempf sound like (a new spelling has already been applied for in the Duden)? Well, that’s not that difficult to explain. Take 5 guys who met through funny coincidences, friends and acquaintances and put them in a rehearsal room with some beer. The result is something between German punk, pop punk and indie rock and of course: always with a clear edge against right-wing politics!
Lyrically, singer Max moves between heartbreak and revolution, while Leon and Marco’s guitars gently and aggressively move the chords. In addition, there is a solid drum framework from Niklas, which is only inferior to Travis Barker in terms of the color pigments under the skin. Rounded off by bassist Tjorre,
