Baxter Dury – Claire


A strong return from singer/songwriter Baxter Dury (son of Blockheads’ frontman Ian Dury). “Claire”, the lead track from Dury’s upcoming Happy Soup LP for Parlophone, sounds international (global?); the song draws from a widely reaching musical palette; it sounds like Dury’s home, the UK (60’s pop, 80’s, current electro and indie), it sounds like NY, it sort of sounds like France, maybe Brazil. But aside from all that, it’s really really good. Get into it below.
