About Clutching At Straws

Clutching At Straws are a multi-talented and diverse alternative folk quartet, hailing from the ‘creative county’ of Staffordshire. Clutching At Straws use an impressive variety of instruments to build a full, layered sound suffused with subtlety. From hearing even one of their song it is clear that their influences are diverse and eclectic with hints of everything from the irony of bluegrass through to the drama of musical theatre woven into their varied set list. Straws take you on a journey through almost every sound world. Clutching At Straws‘ musical idiosyncrasies are more than matched by the real coup de theatre of their original lyrics. Real life observation and experience lend themselves to songs that are deep and meaningful, digging into the fundamental questions of human existence; juxtaposed by songs full of hyperbole conferring a dry English humour laced with a healthy dose of tongue in cheek satirical soliloquies, that are often intentionally subversive. Straws’ live shows are brimming with energy and audience interaction. Coupled with their lyricism, this interaction invites audiences to share in stories that are bigger than themselves, keeping Clutching At Straws rooted in folk ideology. A Straws’ gig promises to to be highlight for the hardcore music fan as well as a treat for for the layperson enjoying a pint in their local.
