“It is to be noted that this group manages a well-produced, full, melodic sound that is easy on the ears without seeming to pander to the radio-standards of most metal these days. That being said, these folks deserve that kind of exposure. They deserve your ear, if for just a song. I imagine that the only reason you wouldn’t keep listening is because of a difference in taste, because the overall sound and performance is on point.”
"The future of riff-heavy rock n roll is secured with bands like the North Carolina-based SOMETHING CLEVER who are making a hell of a lot of noise with their latest CD release SEASON OF DARKNESS and the thunderous single FREAKS LIKE YOU where frontman ADAM NELSON cuts loose like a live wire along with some handy ax work from guitarist KELLY FLUSK."
"One of the really cool things about this band is the love that they have for their fans. When I saw them at Clever-CON, not only did I see a great band and experience a great show but I observed how they interacted with their fans after putting on one high energy show. Most bands would retire to their vehicles or go back to their dressing rooms and not come out until everyone has left the building; not them. They hang out with you, talk to you, take pictures with you. When a band takes time to do all those things, it only serves to enhance your experience. I strongly urge you to go and experience Something Clever for yourselves."
"For years (Kelly) Flusk has been the architect behind the sound of SOMETHING CLEVER and despite a number of lineup changes, she has remained a constant and continues to give the band its heavy metal thunder."
"..from the moment they hit the stage to the last note of listening to Season of Darkness, I have to admit I am hooked.."
"The dynamic five-piece band plays tense, textured metal that shifts between thick chunking riffs and flashier guitar work amid vocals that sometimes propel to a scream, vivid bass work, and pummeling rhythms that aren't afraid to pull back when the mood calls for it."
"Trials and tribulations are simply a part of rock n roll and the band SOMETHING CLEVER has had their share. With their latest release SEASON OF DARKNESS the band has emerged with a new lineup which includes COLT CREVAR. His dexterity with the old four strings make these songs of coming out of the darkness and into the light truly shine."
"The band continues to be one of my favorite live acts, local or otherwise."
"This 5 piece Rock Band out of NC has finally found the PERFECT LINEUP and collectively combined their skills to create the monster known as “Season Of Darkness”.This is one of those new albums heading into 2015 that had me excited,because I knew what this band was capable of putting together and they do not disappoint"
"In regards to the album, I found it to be absolutely splendid. It's one that you have to sit and listen to from beginning through to the end."
"There are a couple hand fulls of bands that support the hell out of this scene and this band is one of them. You will never see a band more dedicated to promoting a show, from Internet to putting fliers in people's hands. This is hands down the hardest working band in Charlotte right now and their hard work is paying off."
"Something Clever may be a young band but they rock, write, and perform like seasoned veterans. See them now before they go nationwide. You won't regret it." ~Roger Cullis, Cullis Entertainment
