Local Hero


  1. 1.
    The Big Think
"calling out debauchery, artifice and other sundry aspects of L.A. life. For his new music, Clockwise finds touchstones in 1980s post-punk and New Wave — think New Order, as narrated by weighty baritone of an arena rocker.” - BUZZBANDS.LA
A mixture of Heartland- Warrior-Pop, 80's Post-Punk and New Wave that is comparable to a dreamy pairing of Brian Ferry and Springsteen meets Bowie while Phil Collins and Mark Knopfler cook dinner in the kitchen for New Order and LCD
The two-piece consisting of Andy Clockwise & Mathew Gardner (Jim Ward/Ernest Ellis) have already played a sold-out preview residency to friends and fans in Los Angeles, CA in September 2018, Echo Park Rising and have supported Warpaint & Julian Casablancas, which was met with palpable excitement about this new material.
After some personal tragedy and working his studio on a farm in the NSW North Coast in Australia, Clockwise crafted this album by himself mostly but with friend Omar Yakar Jr. engineering and co-producing (War On Drugs, Perfume Genius) when he got back to Los Angeles to finish it at Boulevard Recordings (Pink Floyd The Wall, Fleetwood Mac Rumours). A triple album ‘War Stories’ will be released mid-2018 in 3 volumes through to who knows when?
“War Stories” is about the wars we put each other through…a pop musical ode to human dysfunction, heartache, sex, grief, revolution, and the death of our youth. It sounds alright too. " - Andy Clockwise
