Clarity (80s AOR from Australia)


Recommended Posts

Hey guys

 

Tim from our band (LORD) has just put together a solo project entitled 'Clarity' and to start things off, he's recorded a track call 'Lonely Nights' thats available for FREE DOWNLOAD below.

A bit of info on the project...

 

The CLARITY Project is the brainchild and solo project of Lord Tim, frontman of LORD[/b], previously of Dungeon and well-known audio producer and music video director.

 

WHY DO THIS? While LORD offers L.T. a massive degree of freedom when it comes to musical styles (LORD is renowned for its broad musical pallette), being a band situation means catering to the collective rather than the focus coming entirely from any one person. Aside from this, L.T. was interested in working with other singers and musicians beyond the scope of inviting a guest to appear on an album, and working with music that even goes beyond LORD's broad boundaries, such as 80s pop/rock, orchestral scores and specific concept pieces.

 

A DIFFERENT APPROACH. Writing a whole album of related material is hard work, even for a band like LORD that doesn't stick with the same narrow style all album. It takes months of writing, pre-production, recording, mixing, editing, etc. to make the songs not only stand up on their own but work together as a whole. It's a rewarding experience at the end, but a very long process. Clarity is different. As as rule there are no actual albums or EPs as such, just songs that feel right to do at the time as individual entities. Sometimes several similar songs will be recorded at once, sometimes it will be a once-off unrelated piece - whatever works, works. It's a more immediate process that exploits the creativity of the moment. The idea of a releasing a full album is still open to try but it's more the exception than the rule.

 

A DIFFERENT WORLD. The world of record labels and corporations is rapidly changing. The days of releasing an album through a label and expecting sales through retail stores is truly over, especially for independant artists. Albums are pirated and put onto Torrent sites within hours of their release (in some cases long before if a press copy is leaked). This takes money away from the labels, and in turn from the artist both as royalties and the marketing budget that a label is willing to spend to promote the artist. Any casual web-surfer knows where to go to find albums for free these days. With Clarity, the plan is to actually GIVE THE MUSIC AWAY FOR FREE, and suggesting that if people enjoy the music, donate whatever price they feel comfortable giving to keep this project afloat.

I had a listen......very impressive sounding band. I'm classified as a keyboard oriented melodic rock nut, so this one rang my chimes. I hope the fellas put their heads together and come up with a full length release soon, I'd be buyer!

 

One quickie.....so as not to create any confusion, there is a Finnish power metal band of the same name..."Clarity" who released an album in 2001 titled "Empty X Space". They also had a demo CD out in 1999 titled "The Demo".

Not bad... just to confirm, can you actually download it for use on an Ipod, or is it just there to be played on the net?

I must really suck because when I click on "Lonely Nights (MP3 version, 7428 KB)" it just plays in Quicktime. I don't even know what the FLAC thing is but my PC doesn't read it. :(

Do a right hand click and select 'save as' - it should save it to your computer as an .mp3 :)

 

Guys, another song has been recorded and put on the page for everyone - 'So Close (And Yet So Far)'

    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)  
    • Literally just added this one to the main site: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=433&CDName=30 Coming In Hot&Letter=A

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
