Clark tackles unfamiliar territory in new album ‘Kiri Variations’

UK Native Clark has released Kiri Variations – a collection of his works for Channel 4’s BAFTA-nominated mini-series ‘Kiri’. Though we don’t get to hear every track over the duration of the four episodes, the rest of the album really feeds into the general themes of the show and acts as an effective continuation of it.

Kiri Variations takes a wide berth from some of Clark’s usual electronic sounds, featuring the use of some more acoustic elements tied in with meticulously placed haunting vocals. Regarding his approach for writing the album, Clark explains it best: “I want people to listen to this in the same way they would read a set of Roald Dahl short stories; bitter-sweet tales with hooks and teeth and unexpected macabre twists. Proper Witch vibes.”

Whether it’s the child-like innocence of ‘Kiri’s Glee’, the dark and foreboding nature behind ‘Primary Pluck’ or the mournful vocals on ‘Goodnight Kiri’, every track in this body of work stands out in its own right. It’s safe to say that Clark has achieved what he set out to with this one.
