Hailing from Sydney, Australia and now based in Hollywood, Andy Clockwise has proving himself to be one of the more compelling artists in independent music. 2014’s EP Dancing World propelled him to a new level of success in the United States with Nylon Guys calling the music “downright infectious.” Clockwise records, performs, produces, and mixes all his records.
His live shows are unforgettable raucous affairs – think LCD Soundsystem meets Nick Cave – and as a result Clockwise has fostered a loyal fan base on both coasts of the US where he consistently plays to packed rooms. Andy has toured with The Black Keys, Julian Casablancas and Warpaint.
Andy Clockwise is happy to share his new single “I’ve Arrived (The Good Book Pt.1)”. Andy has had steady momentum for the past year and has more in store. For the past few weeks, Andy has been the special guest on a bunch of sold out shows across north america with Dance Yourself Clean, plus special one off side dates in the USA’s favorite venues and an invitation to this year’s SXSW Music Conference 2016. All in the lead up to a new EP, The Good Book.
The Good Book will be released April 8th, and this is the second song and video we have seen from Clockwise that previews the new EP. Numerous and diverse guests such as John Hawkes (Award winning character actor) Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Kurt Vile) John JT Thomas (Captain Beefheart, Sparks) & Holly Valance on the bonus track are all appearing on the upcoming release.
In late 2015 Andy also released “Open Relationship.” Both the track and the video feature Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. Interview Magazine premiered the video calling it “intriguing,” going on to say “sonically, the song sounds like LCD Soundsystem-meets-’80s disco and funk, but lyrically, it enters a more modern era through the omnipresent idea of open relationships.” When premiering the single, The WILD Magazine said “Open Relationship” has the duo tapping into “the louche swagger of Suede and Roxy Music as their voices playfully duel over a ripping bassline.”
