Inventive, weighty pop music which dazzles, shimmers and glows exquisitely in the cold light of 
the day.“  GoldFlakePaint 
 
 
Brighton based musician Kristin McClement has lived many lives before finding herself on the 
shores of Southern England.  

 
Kristin’s music is born of two separate worlds; the vast shape shifting landscape of her childhood 
South Africa engraved with the melancholic romance of old England’s sacred woodland, rivers 
and valleys.  
Produced by Christian Hardy of The Leisure Society, The Wild Grips (released feb 2015) is a wide-eyed rendering 
of modern folk song where the acoustic and the electronic rub alongside. Whilst making the album, Kristin and the band were influenced as much by artists like PJ Harvey and Portishead 
as they were by the ‘pure’ sounds of Leonard Cohen/Nico and Nick Drake. Essentially a collection of personal ballads, the songs connect closest with an audience already familiar with the 
history of alternative folk music but will hopefully ignite a broader appeal thanks to their powerful and thoughtful delivery.
