Encompassing the prowess of bassist Robbie Sampson, guitarist Lee Harrison, drummer Mark Green, vocalist Paul Sellors and guitarist Selwyn Collister, the dynamic band presents an eclectic mix of styles and sounds. Inspired by the musical influences of Duran Duran, Level 42, REM, The Who, The Jam, and The Stranglers, klevershirts provide a memorable soundscape.
