The Clydes are an American rock band that is from New Jersey.


The Clydes are an alternative rock and pop rock quartet from New Brunswick, New Jersey that started in 2009, led by vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist Brent Johnson and lead guitarist Brian Johnson, who are brothers. Previously, the Johnsons were members of alt-rock band Rest Assured, when they were students at Rutgers University. That group released the album The Most Popular Girl in the Sea in 2004. A few years later, longtime friend and fellow Rutgers graduate, bassist Andrew Lord Chandler joined the Johnsons when they decided to form a new band, which would become the Clydes.[1] They named the new group after NBA legend Walt "Clyde" Frazier.[2][1][3]

The Clydes released three records independently. The seven-track EP The Cindy Bannon Sessions was released on 22 February 2010, and their second EP, the six-track EP Generator, which is described as "captur[ing] the band's live prowess," was released on 9 December 2013. The first full-length album by the Clydes, Hiding from the Summer was released on 22 May 2015, and by that year the Clydes "buil[t] a name for themselves by playing venues throughout the Northeast," like the Stone Pony and the Bitter End.[4] They were in contact with several labels who were showing interest in their music, before signing with Mint 400 Records in 2016.[2]

Mint 400 Records[edit]

In 2016, the Clydes released Comeback Charlie, a five-song EP produced by Neil Sabatino.[4] Bob Makin of Courier News describes it as "five nuggets of ’60s-inspired indie pop and garage rock that will appeal to fans of the Zombies, the 13th Floor Elevators and the Box Tops."[5] The Clydes performed at the 2016 North Jersey Indie Rock Festival.[6] They released the album So the Story Goes on 20 October 2017. The record draws from "classic rock, the jangly sounds of the late 80s, and even Brit Pop."[7] It also features trumpet and a wide arrangement of guitar tones, and is noted as being "melodic, emotive, [and] easy-listening."[4][3] The track "The Vampire Of Hanover" was written from the point of view of Fritz Haarmann, a German serial killer from the early 20th century.[4] Neil Sabatino, Mint 400's owner, produced the album directed the music video for the first single, "Holly Speaks."[7][8] Impose magazine described the next single, 2018's "Broken Boy," as having a "beautifully buoyant backbeat as the lead and rhythm guitar lines weave like sun-kissed streams."[9]

The Clydes covered The Beatles' "Your Mother Should Know" for the Mint 400 compilation album At the Movies in 2018. Jersey Beat columnist Paul Silver describes it as" nice and jangly, reasonably true to the original, though a bit faster."[10]
