Paul Clay’s “Lab and Family” is a high-energy blend of danceable electro/acoustic-pop fun. His songs vary from bouncy queertronica to more introspective and political electroballads. Be taken away by stories of vampires, mermaids, bicycles, drag queens, post-apocalypse, and the AIDS crisis.
"...a dynamic and varied sound that at once reminds me of Electro-clash beats and a musical theater piece. And yet, be ready to surprised again because the next track may morph into a surreal and sweet folk song. I do so love the schizophrenic nature of his sound." - Alley Hector, Oregonlive.com
The "soundtrack to the raddest halloween party ever... Devandra Banhard with a drum machine...Jonathan Richman as a 19-year-old queer boy." - Danny Toman, Reed College Quest
"Lab and Family" was written, performed, recorded, and produced by Paul Clay out of Portland, Oregon. Album art by Norah Hoover. Album design by Paul Clay.
