One of Gigwise’s favourite bands of the last eighteen months Clor have split amid the old cliché of artistic differences.

The band were thought to be working on their second album, the follow up to 2005’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: “Clor, 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.”

“Unable 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.”

It added: “At 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.”
