    Get With It (Radio Edit) - Renee Phoenix
Hard rock is in need of a duo like White Stripes or Twenty One Pilots, and Something Clever’s Adam Nelson and Kelly Flusk are poised to claim that spot.
Inspired by a Charles Bukowski quote “Find what you love, and let it kill you.”, their latest banger “Let It Kill Me” hits home for the North Carolina duo.
Shouting an overall theme of endurance through hardships and finding purpose through victory has proven to be a successful message. Nelson’s lyrics bleed from his past with stories of life’s struggles, anger and depression. But the songs deliver a message of hope and acceptance.
Sonically they bring a fresh perspective on alternative metal, which got them opening spots for All That Remains, Red Sun Rising, and Danny Wimmer Presents: Carolina Rebellion. But you would also find them alongside Nine Inch Nails, Asking Alexandria, or I Prevail. Their rock anthem "Rise" has racked up 500,000 streams and impressive video game and TV placements on Dragon Ball Super, Armored Warfare, and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just to name a few and a combined 4 Million plus views.
Something Clever and their legions of fans (Insiders), have more new music coming soon. Join the newsletter to keep up:
