Domino is proud to announce the arrival of Clinic's new album Bubblegum, released on October 5, 2010.

Bubblegum, Clinic’s sixth album, is a rewiring of Clinic’s trademark hyped up sound.  In place of churning riffs and wired vocals is a dream state of harpsichord, dulcimers and strings.  Melody and softness combine with the band’s unique internal logic to produce a record of pop beauty.

Bubblegum is Clinic throwing us a curveball.  Alternating between lost soundtracks to exploitation films: ‘Liontamer’, ‘Un Astronauta En Cielo’, watery pop-psych: ‘Bubblegum’, ‘Linda’, ‘Forever (Demis’ Blues)’ and ping-pong symphonies: ‘Milk & Honey’ and ‘Another Way Of Giving’, this is a very different and very singular Clinic.

Produced by John Congleton (Bill Callahan, St Vincent) and recorded at Elevator Studios in Liverpool, Bubblegum is a high water mark in Clinic’s career to date.
