George Clanton

“Go to any of his live shows and you’ll witness first-hand the devotion between George and his audience. At a show in Brooklyn late last year — the room filled with coconut-scented vapor from a smoke machine, surround sound speakers, and a huge LED light backdrop playing warped smiley faces — George mirrored his audience’s frenetic energy. Having grown up going to punk shows in a college town in Virginia, he says the punk approach of connecting with his audience is crucial to his music. “It’s like the only time that I’m fully happy,” he says, half-jokingly. “Not to say that I’m a sad person, but I just live for that moment.” – VICE
