UNDERCLAIRE is a definitive guitar, alt-rock band that surfaced in Little Rock, AR in the late nineties during the burgeoning music scene of the region. Since then, they have shared the stage with acts such as Built To Spill, Local H, Sparta, Living Sacrifice, Candlebox, Attack!Attack!, Saliva, Corey Glover (Living Colour), and The Kicks. Consistently putting out albums and playing regionally, they have made a name as a Little Rock mainstay.
After spending the better part of 2009 in the studio, Underclaire released Making Sky on January 1st 2010. As with Lights Out, Cairo and Smalltown X, this 3rd full-length album was recorded at Poynter's Palace with Barry Poynter (The Juliana Theory, Living Sacrifice, Ho-Hum, South Park, HBO, etc).
During these sessions, Poynter took on the task of writing and playing the bass guitar lines in addition to his usual Engineer/Producer duties. Making Sky is a concept album that is lush, layered and polished (in comparison with the indie-rockish, stripped, and minimal-overdub arrangement of 2004’s Smalltown X). It is the tale of fraternal twins—a brother and sister whose lives and luck take a turn for the worst. The cover art was provided by Canadian artist, Socar Myles (www.gorblimey.com).
