One of Gigwiseâ€™s favourite bands of the last eighteen months Clor have split amid the old clichÃ© of artistic differences.
The band were thought to be working on their second album, the follow up to 2005â€™s superb self titled debut, but a statement from the band's manager announced the groups demise earlier today.
The statement from John Best reads: â€œClor, a band for whom musical differences surely seemed to be the whole point, have nonetheless succumbed to this hoariest of Rock'n'Roll fates and decided not to be a pop group anymore.â€
â€œUnable to reconcile the yin and yang of wanting to be both wildly creative and chart-bothering, they will leave a big, uniquely C.L.O.R.-shaped hole in the all-too-generic world of guitar/electronic music.â€
It added: â€œAt the time of writing the future career paths of Dobbin and Smith are unclear, though both are likely to continue making music along their divergent routes.â€
