Clinical Trials – You’re a Jukebox Heroine

In the Wake of the Digital Afterlife Cover Art

Clinical Trials is a Rock/Electro/Grunge outfit led by Somer Bingham, with  Dan LeMunyan on drums, AJ Annunziata on bass, and Ino Aksentiev on synths and keys.

From Brooklyn, NY, Clinical Trials brings the edgy flavor of the most acclaimed concert jungle, boasting influences such as MIA, Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, and PJ Harvy. I would even say that there are hints of Peaches as well in the polyphonic synths that drive much of the 90s distorted guitars.

Somer’s vocals are abound with protest march like  forcefulness. The drums swarm with crisp timing, and the bass and keys compliment each others highs and lows.

Disco Headphones is my favorite track, and begins with a dirty bass riff soon followed by Somer’s Debbie Harry-like rasp. The remix is also excellent, which you can check out on their myspace.

Clinical Trials – No trial needed. Edgy post-mod synthesis that will rock your headphones off.
