Commons have recently released their highly anticipated debut EP, ‘Clean Living’ this month. Coming off the back of their previous single ‘Queen Of Hearts’ off of the five track EP, the Nottingham indie rockers have burst onto the scene with this release on the 24th of May. Known for their dynamic blend of indie rock infused with electronic elements, Commons have quickly established themselves with a series of packed-out shows in Nottingham.

Clean Living showcases Commons' infectious energy and vibrant catchiness, drawing comparisons to heavyweights like Kasabian, Foals, and Bloc Party. The band skillfully intertwines lush synth lines with punchy drums, tight guitar riffs, and unforgettable melodies, creating a sound that is distinctly their own.

The EP is a kaleidoscope of musical influences, with each track offering a unique, ear-catching flair. According to the band, Clean Living is an exploration of varied musical tastes, with songs that tell diverse stories and experiences rather than focusing on a single theme. This eclectic approach ensures that every listen reveals new layers and nuances. Speaking on the EP the band shares,

“Clean Living is an ode to our kaleidoscopic taste in music, with each song giving a flare of something exciting that catches your ears leaving you eager for more. There is a wide range of meaning behind each track in this, it's not solely based on one event or feeling - it's more focused on telling short stories and experiences.”
