Australian songwriter and producer Callan Alexander, under his project cln, continues to captivate with his distinctive blend of alternative/R&B infused with indie-pop influences.

Following the well-received singles ‘Monday Morning‘ and ‘ihopeyoufindsomeone,’ cln introduces the third single from his forthcoming album. The track, ‘rainonmyparade,’ is a beautifully crafted track inspired by a chance encounter with a compelling phrase during a conversation. The track unfolds with a blend of enchanting melodies and soulful undertones. The original demo, recorded on a humble iPhone voice note, transformed, speeding up the tempo and evolving into a multi-layered sonic journey over several months.

“This song was mostly made because I wanted to use ‘rain on my parade’ as a lyric. I heard the expression being used in conversation a while back and straight away thought: ‘oh that would be pretty good in a song’ and here we are. For some reason the idea of someone specifically asking for their parade to be rained on appealed to me during the writing process, so I guess this parade is a bit damp.

“The original demo was about 20bpm slower and purely acoustic, recorded on my iPhone as a voice note. I sped it right up and then slowly added all the other elements over the course of a few months + re-recorded the vocals. I might release the first idea at some point too, but it will need some tidying up first.”

‘rainonmyparade’ is out now.
