Format Info


CLEARING is the elemental debut album from multifaceted PC Music originator Hyd. The record, a tactile masterpiece, cycles through a reckoning following a fiery period of fear, loss and destruction where Hyd chooses softness and a gentle touch to come to terms with the chaos. CLEARING embodies a restoration that mirrors the emergence of a Garden – through seed-like vulnerability, the album combines glitching pop-heights with glistening intimacy, exploring the cyclical nature of growth, both personal, in community and in all nature. Featuring contributions from close friends and longtime collaborators SOPHIE, A. G. Cook and Caroline Polachek, Hyd’s highly anticipated debut is a chrisalyssed amalgamation of healing, nourishment, and a haven for all. Featuring single “Afar”, produced by Caroline Polachek and launched to critical acclaim in July, with support from Mary Anne Hobbs and Lauren Laverne on BBC RADIO 6Music, Pitchfork, Notion, Paper Magazine and more.
