The Cliftons are a Scottish Alt-Rock band formed in 2013 in Aberdeen and managed by Kid A Music. They are: James Will on Lead Vocals & Rhythm Guitar, Andrew Joseph on Lead Guitar, Keir Smith on Bass Guitar) & Bilal Benzahia Drums, Percussion and Backing Vocals).
Releasing their self titled debut EP in the summer of 2015, it proved a hit with their fan base and songs such as Methamphetamine becoming fond fan favourites, no wonder it currently features in Ralph's Top 10 as played on Radio KC.
The Cliftons proclaim to distil the sounds of Arctic Monkeys and Catfish & The Bottlemen, whilst still staying true to the poetic and boyish charm (they look like they're only 10) that rock music represents.
The Cliftons have supported names such as The Bluetones and Man Made, headlined multiple venues, and played sold out shows, such as The Lemon Tree and have also released their follow up EP this month and that's fresh off the back of being Finalists in the Original 106fm 'One to Watch' Award.
"With meaningful, honest and true heartfelt lyrics, thumping drums, deep bass lines & rough, dirty lead guitar, The Cliftons are making their mark on the Scottish music scene and are a band to watch out for."
