Claire

(logo designed by mess of Taipei, Taiwan)

Claire is another talented group from the lovely island of Taiwan worth checking out. To my knowledge, they're unsigned at the moment but are regular performers in various clubs in Taipei. Notably, the group was approached by director Wi Ding Ho to help create the soundtrack for the French indie film "Respire (Breathe)" in 2005. These guys take their influences from Radiohead, Jamiroquai and Pink Floyd but lead singer Luke croons with a much gentler, almost breathy, voice. The group displays a nice blend of digital and soft rock sounds.

Listen to:
"Claire"
