A Different Sound Per Song
‘Wow. This album-House of Cards- Part 1- is one of a kind!’
Formed in 2007 and from Basingstoke, this three- piece progressive rock fusion band have released their debut album- ‘House of Cards- Part 1’. This bands sound has undergone a musical journey and can only be described as an electric mix of their vast tastes and influences. They are called....? Wait for it....
The Clarity. Tim Spargo is the drummer and percussionist, Alex Kelly is the lead vocalist and plays the guitar and last but not least Chris Beattie, who plays the bass, piano and sings the backing vocals in the band.
The Clarity went to Earth Terminal Studios to record their debut album ‘House of Cards- Part 1’ and it is based on tarot cards plus they performed at the 100% Festival in Basingstoke in front of 150 people last year and at other gigs.

‘The Tarot Overture’ is their first song on the album. It starts straight away with an electric guitar playing the memorable rhythm and the drums playing the beat of the song.
The second song is ‘The Fool’, where the hook is immediate and catchy, the guitar has a great but repetitive rhythm and the drums play a funky part to the song.
This song should have some musical surprises as it’s called ‘The Magician’.
It grabs you immediately as the electric guitar plays a memorable part.
Now some vocals are coming into the song... YES! They start off very softly then become a crescendo and the sound just builds up and up and finally it lets go with the chorus. Then the drums play a vital part of the song.
Great lyrics and soft drums with a fab guitar in this song ‘The Priestess’ and ‘The Empire’ starts off very loud then goes down to a fairly soft guitar and vocals and does a crescendo towards the second half of the song then is back to its fairly quiet instruments.
Two very rocky songs on the album are ‘The Hierophant’ and ‘The Chariot’ plus ‘Wheel of Fortune’, which is another catchy tune from the album.
You know when you’re feeling a bit down and you want something to lift your spirits up, get you back into the happy part of your life? Well this song ‘The Lovers’ will do it. Your head starts listening to the tune, your feet start tapping to the beat and your ears start hearing the guitar being played.
The next song off the album is ‘Justice’ and now ‘The Hermit’.
As soon as it starts the guitar gets you hooked to the song, the drums play and
the vocals are great.
As it was written earlier ‘Wow. This album- House of Card- Part 1 is one of a kind and it’s definitely an album to purchase.’... Easy to relate to lyrics, with melodic guitars, energetic drums, catchy lyrics and great sounds, which is exactly what The Clarity have created with their debut album.
