one of the indisputable masterpieces of British pop...rare sonic ambition and scope” The Sunday Times
“a bar-raiser – an album of intelligent synth pop bubbling with humanity” Clash
“I’ve seen the future and it looks just like today, with all the failures and the waiting cut away” sings Guy Connelly, Clock Opera’s frontman.
A mosaic of staccato synths, distorted bass clarinets and blissed ambient textures, Clock Opera’s energetic new single ‘Be Somebody Else’ delves into the schizophrenic distance between self-acceptance and the hyped-up versions we present online.
'I saw you living half a life when I thought you were living two. You’re at the mercy of what you think I think of you. You’ve got to be somebody else.'
Clock Opera rose to prominence in 2012 with their debut ‘Ways To Forget’, together with a raft of
well-loved remixes for Everything Everything, Christine & The Queens, Metronomy, Blood Orange,
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marina & The Diamonds amongst many others.
Following extensive worldwide touring (with Alt-J, Metronomy, Django Django) their 2017 follow-up ‘Venn’
explored darker territory. Stand-out track ‘Whippoorwill’ became their most-streamed song to date.
Following the departure of original guitarist Andrew West, Clock Opera now take the form of a compact
three-piece: Guy Connelly (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, production), Che Albrighton (drums), and Nic
Nell (keyboards, bass, vocals, production).
