about

"Very little in music excites me more than a fiery vocals coming from a bad girl. Think Polly Jean Harvey, Joan Jett, etc. That sense of angst, so true, so guttural can often draw you in and make the listener feel her presence, her pain, her desires. We have that here in spades..." - Billy Suede, The Boy with the Thorn in His Side

Clinical Trials is the electro-grunge offspring of Somer Bingham, a self-produced musician whose sun-drenched childhood in boring but beautiful Florida did nothing to quell her inner angst. She migrated north to seek bleaker pastures, finding trouble in the big city before eventually settling in Brooklyn, NY.

Music came after severe heartbreak left her bitter, without purpose, and in search of the most extravagant and difficult means of making her ex jealous, i.e. by becoming a rock star.

The sound of Clinical Trials is influenced by Nirvana, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Ladytron, Sonic Youth, Depeche Mode, Ayn Rand, long walks on an imaginary beach, and Russian literature. Bingham's sonic goal is to meld her unhealthy Kurt Cobain obsession with dirty synthesizers and distorted beats - and she finds success on the debut EP "In the Wake of the Digital Afterlife," which was digitally released on January 1, 2010.

Bingham is now joined by Cici Harrison on the drums, forming an all-female grungy live show that proves why duos are just so hot right now.

Track Name: Polly Got Away
Polly got away
I remember feeling
Sorry for the man, sorry for the man
Sorry that he gave her back her freedom

[Chorus]
Come on let your feelings in,
Come on let your feelings in,
Open up your inside just for a little while

Polly had her way
Hung it from the ceiling
Laughing at the world, what a lovely girl saying that
These are the things that heroes are made of
These are the things that heroes are made of

[Chorus]

I'll tell you what you want to hear,
Give it to you anywhere
Do it to me clean, yeah, you know what it means

[Chorus]

Do it to me clean,
Do it to me clean,
Do it to me...
Track Name: DiscoHeadphones
We all love pretty things,
Well they make you feel what it's like to be happy
When I'm alone with my pretty things
Well I really think you're worth every penny

Every day, every day and every night
I've got a disco running in my headphones
I rock hard, I'm a rolling stone
And I just can't wait til I get you alone

Sell it all
To get what you want
Sell it all
Oh I really hope that you get what you pay for

Bring all your little dreams
And we'll make you real, yeah
We'll make you happy
All alone with your pretty things
Well we really think you're worth every penny

Every day, every day and every night
I've got a disco running in my headphones
I rock hard, I'm a rolling stone
And I just can't wait til I get you alone

Every day, every day and every night
I've got a disco running in my headphones
I rock hard yeah, oh yeah
Dreaming of the day when
I'm gonna be a video star

Sell it all
To get what you want
Sell it all
Oh I really hope that you get what you pay for

Every day, every day and every night
I've got a disco running in my headphones
I rock hard, I'm a rolling stone
And I just can't wait til I get you alone

Every day, every day and every night
I've got a disco running in my headphones
I rock hard yeah, oh yeah
Dreaming of the day when
I'm gonna be a video star
Track Name: Hey
The lights go round
All night long
They chase the whores in the street
They chase the boys in the bars

They sing silent hymns
They say oh my god
Well it's a long long way from the place we call home
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

[Chorus]
They say la la la
La la la la la la la
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

You're just the thing
Like a diamond ring
It makes my little heart sing
La la la la la

Well we're a long long way from the place that we call home
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

[Chorus]

The lights go down
Someone change me
Someone save me
From all the lies, the drugs, the gods, the guns
The pain, the thugs, the broke down love
The lies, the drugs, the gods, the guns

Well we're a long long way from the place that we call home
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

[Chorus]
Track Name: Burnt Out Sunday
Burnt out on Sunday
Nothing comes free
She called on Monday morning
But not for me

Yesterdays flooded
Red like the ocean tide
Lay down my lover
Whisper little dirty white lies

Look at this my blue eyed Monday
Don't pretend my blue eyed girl
Look at this my blue eyed Monday
Shake your fists but it won't do any good

Yesterday's flooded
Dark like the deepest sea
Lay down my lover
Do good to me

Look at this my blue eyed Monday
Don't pretend my blue eyed girl
Look at this my blue eyed Monday
Shake your fists but it won't do any good

Lick my lips, shake my hips
And go down into it
Like my lips, shake my hips
And go down...
Track Name: Awake in My Arms
Lie awake
Awake in my arms, it's gray
All over the morning,
All over our bodies
Do it to me that way, yeah

Things you say
Say when we are wide awake
4:30 in the morning
Tell me what you're thinking
Baby you amaze me, yeah

[Chorus]
Darling, listen to my heart beat
One more cup of coffee
Then we'll go our separate ways
Maybe it's love for an hour or two but
No one's gonna put their chains on you

Break me baby
Make me feel the deepest pains
All over my body
Break it to me softly
Tear my heart in two

Nothing stays
The same it's always changing, yeah
Changes without warning,
Same ol' love story
Just a different name

[Chorus]

Lie awake
Awake in my arms, it's gray
All over the morning,
All over our bodies
Do it to me that way, yeah
