With comparisons to The Libertines, The Streets, Arctic Monkeys, The Smiths and The Clash the Clockworks showcase their own take on Indie/Post-Punk Revival through wry, tongue-in-cheek, kitchen-sink tales of life as a young adult.
Led by London born James McGregor, who joined Seán Connelly (Guitar), drummer Damian Greaney and bassist Diarmuid Prendergast in early 2015, The Clockworks have had a successful few months. Playing festivals all across the country, headlining gigs in both Ireland and London, and featuring in Hot Press magazine (“you’ll be hearing a lot more about The Clockworks”).
The Clockworks have a definite mission for their future: to “write decent ‘band songs’ about everyday life” (Connelly), “and to headline Glastonbury with them” (Greaney).
The Clockworks latest offering ‘You Are The Problem’ has angst dripping from it with Clash inspired guitars and early Artic Monkeys acerbic writing with a tendency to include ear-worm guitar bridges.
