Less is more - the motto applies to Luxembourg's most intriguing newcomer Arthur Clees, whose
approach is minimalist, rich, hypnotic. Clees is a young prodigy drummer / percussionist / vocalist with
a multitude of performances and sessions under his belt. The 21-year-old musician manages to inspire
very different people with his tracks. No Wonder: There's both depth and a tremendous upward pull at
the same time.
In his debut album, "Stay, Temporary Home" influences from techno to electronica to the avant-garde
are paired with a distinctive feeling for melodies and a signature treatment of percussion. Soul and
R&B songs often appear as sonically distant yet emotionally close mirages. In addition, slightly altered
vocals, hearty yet reductionist beats and a detuned piano reminiscent of your favourite aunt's Sunday
cookies come in - a mixture that an incredible number of people can agree on at the moment.
