Hailing from the inner-West of Sydney is a talented group of 14/15 year olds collectively known as The Clueless, who despite posting the scorching track ‘Trash‘ on Triple J Unearthed are so underground they don’t even have a photo!
‘Trash’ is a well layered tune driven by the Last Dinosaurs-esque tropical guitar patterns. The drumming is tight, the bass-line bounces and the vocals by Ruben Neeson almost perfectly channel the angsty, matter-o-fact, style of Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner. A fantastic indie song laden with subtle changes in tempo and featuring some almighty guitar hooks. ‘Trash’ can easily slide into the same genre as Glass Towers, Last Dino’s and Loon Lake, being short, sweet and a pretty catchy little number.
Given their young age, and the maturity shown in ‘Trash’, expect to hear a lot more about The Clueless.
