Klutæ is an industrial music project from Denmark founded by musician Claus Larsen, who is best known for his main project, Leæther Strip. Originally formed in 1991 under the name Klute, the project went dormant after 1996’s Excel. It reformed in 2006 as Klutæ, to avoid confusion with drum and bass artist Tom Withers who had since risen to prominence with the pseudonym Klute. The come-back EP Sinner and the following album Hit’n’Run were released by the Belgian label Alfa Matrix.
Klutæ’s first releases showcased a rather heavy and turbo-driven guitar-oriented sound which brought him comparisons to metal-industrial acts like Fear Factory, Bile, and Swamp Terrorists, yet Claus Larsen has always considered this project as his most eclectic and unpredictable outlet. So it was no major surprise seeing its hardest walls of synthesised guitar noise eventually giving way to mid-tempo pounding tracks powered by the Leæther Strip trademark ebm bass-lines and Claus’ chameleon vocals.
In fact, Klutæ traditionally stands for a more punkish “in ya face attitude” with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and “angst-til-ya-bust” old-school elektro arrangements. And it’s with that very characteristic sense of humour that Claus Larsen invites us now on another extravaganza journey through desert storms, biker orgies, hell fires, death valley saloons and other sexy parties with fat faggots in leather jackets.
As compared to Leæther Strip, Larsen describes Klutæ as more “loud and fun.” Klutæ’s initial releases were in the industrial metal style, mixing Leæther Strip’s electro-industrial sound with sampled guitars. In its more recent guise, it has returned to a more classic electro-industrial style.
