Entry Requirements: 14+
Scruff of the Neck presents
A combination of freestyling and raspy melodic vocals, auspicious guitar pieces, and a Madchester driven rhythm section amalgamate to form The Claremonts
"With memorable riffs and massive songs combined with thrilling live performances and immense stage presence, these young lads can make it to the very top"
Fast, scratchy rock n roll; eager to reignite a sound that had since faded towards the back end of the noughties.

With no shortage of indie-pop bands in Manchester, it can often seem impossible to find something that breaks the mould. Fortunately, while they may appear fresh-faced, The Claremonts provide a contemporary twist to an otherwise timeless brand of indie-rock, suggesting a musicality that goes far beyond their young years.
Taking their influence from local legends such as The Smiths and The Stone Roses, the band harbour a trademark jangle that’s both unequivocally Manc and utterly irresistible, making for an aesthetic that feels nostalgic but never stuck in the past.
2018 saw the band's biggest headliner and the continuation of their impact on the festival circuit, making their debut at Tramlines and Dot to Dot Festival.
Their latest, self-produced single, "Surprise Surprise" combines hip hop inspired verses with a stomping indie rock chorus, powered by the funk driven rhythm section and ferocious guitar tone which has come to define the four piece.
