Cautious Clay Debuts SIDEWINDER Video, Confirms North American and EU Headline Tour

Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer Cautious Clay premieres the introspective, Haoyan of America-directed video for "SIDEWINDER" today via Billboard. Watch it here. The video is taken from his much-lauded third EP Table of Context, released earlier this year.

"I wanted the visual to be simple and to almost feel like a dream sequence of when you are distracted thinking about something," Cautious tells Billboard. "The snake and lighter represent that distraction or 'back and forth' kind of attitude towards a lot of things in life; sometimes the things we run away from end up being what we want most and visa versa."

Following sets at Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, Boston Calling and more this summer, Cautious will tour North America and Europe this fall, with newly announced headline shows in Paris, London,Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, New York, Philadelphia and beyond. Tickets go on sale Friday,June 21, visit for more information.

Table of Context, Cautious' third EP, is out now. In addition to "SIDEWINDER," the EP features "REASONS" with Tobias Jesso Jr. and Hudson Mohawke and "SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS" with UMI, plus two more tracks. The EP follows 2018's Blood Type andRESONANCE. Further new music from Cautious is imminent.

Cautious Clay is 26-year-old Josh Karpeh. Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, Karpeh first found music through his training in classical flute, which quickly opened the doors of blues and jazz. In college, he added many other instruments as well as songwriting and production to his repertoire, and soon after began releasing music of his own. Now based in Brooklyn, he has toured the world over and collaborated and shared stages with the likes of John Mayer, Omar Apollo, Tayla Parx, AlunaGeorge, Petit Biscuit, Lil Silva and more, and his music has appeared on "Insecure." Watch Cautious perform a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR here.
