The Cliks

The Cliks
he Cliks are a Canadian rock band, consisting of Lucas Silveira (vocalist/guitarist), Jen Benton (bass), Morgan Doctor (drums), and Nina Martinez (guitar). Their major label debut album, Snakehouse was released on April 24, 2007 by Warner Music in Canada and Tommy Boy Records in the United States.

“I was in a six-and-a-half year relationship that came to a really, really messy end. After the breakup, both of my band members quit. It was hard to take, because I was falling back on the music to take me to a place where I could keep myself going. My father had a stroke. My grandmother died. A friend of mine got rediagnosed with cancer after being cancer-free for four months. It was just one thing after another.”

“I also started coming to terms with a lot of identity issues, being transgendered and all this stuff. I had a huge breakdown and decided I was either going to get through it or I wasn’t. And look at that: I came out of it with an amazing album and an amazing band. Sometimes you have to go down to get back up again.” - Lucas Silveira

“… the Cliks’ music kinda sounds like what might happen if Chrissie Hynde and the Murmurs’ Leisha Hailey fell in love, got Bowie to help out with insemination and gave birth to an indie rock love child. It’s all kinda raw but sweetly melodic, with a ballsy cabaret swagger.” - SARAH LISS, NOW magazine
He’s not listening, he’s not listening.
If he listened to your heart, he’d hear you saying.
I want, I want, I want my baby.
I want, I want, I want my baby.
I want, I want, I want my baby back.
Oh Yeah
Nobody Else Will
Different Girl
