Clash 124 Gabriels
Gabriels are the first faces of Clash Issue 124.
The LA three-piece are perhaps the definition of an overnight success story – but the ease of Gabriels’ rise belies the years of creativity that have led to this point. Three musicians with hugely varying backgrounds – one a gospel colossus, one a film maker, and the other a soundtrack artist – they somehow amalgamate those differences, creating some truly special music in the process.
Live, they’re a tour de force. On record, few can compare to them. Yet the story of Gabriels isn’t without its twists and turns, a self-contained universe occupied by a triptych of singular artists.
As vocalist Jacob Lusk puts it: “We aren’t afraid to be honest…”
Elsewhere in this issue, you’ll explore the soulful realm of R&B aesthete Fousheé, and meet the pan-genre sonic voyager KAM-BU. We’ll pin-point daine’s avant pop futurism, and gain some life lessons from seminal UK rapper Avelino. You’ll be granted an audience with Grammy-winning saxophonist and songwriter Venna, before diving into the realm of Black Lips, the seminal 90s queer theatrical collective which centred around ANOHNI.
