The Clifton Road Band’s New College Rock

the clifton road band

The Clifton Road Band is an indie rock group who made their professional recording debut in 2022 with the single “Cowboy”. That track introduced a quartet of veteran musicians who have been friends for decades and decided to get together and rekindle the flame.

James (guitar), Chris (vocals), Brad (drums) and Robert (bass) are four buddies in the DMV with a penchant for 80’s college rock, modern indie and Americana. The new band is a vanity project for the crew, an excuse to get together, make some music, and have some fun. Since their debut they have released three singles.

“Katie” is the latest single from The Clifton Road Band, released worldwide via all major streaming services on January 23, 2023. With a sound reminiscent of Velvet Underground acolytes like The Feelies or Jonthan Richman’s Modern Lovers, the track rolls on a bouncing three-chord progression. As the band bangs out their post-punk groove, the singer tells a tale of the elusive title character.

"Katie is a song written originally in the 80s by our guitarist James but revamped for the 2020s by the singer Chris."
