The Clockworks are back with their first new music of 2021, from the glitz to the grit, its bottle-cap strewn pavements and shopping trolleys in the river, to the incandescent promise of its bustling nightlife; in the band’s typically erudite and observational style “Feels So Real” offer a warts-and-all portrait of the city with painterly detail. Finding inspiration in the individual cogs that power the great machine, it’s a track that comments on urban decay and social inequality, drug abuse and danger; but ultimately finds a band living for that incomparable buzz only life in the city can bring.

The latest single is full of passion and has the classic Alternative rock feel to the track as well as the bands own unique sound, from the opening verses your transported to another level with the incorporation of strings, drums and vocals. The chorus is catchy, I have no doubt it will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day like it was for me but with this being a great single I won’t moan about that.

What I love about this incredible band is that they really do stand out with their music, I can’t compare them to another band. Their sound captures your attention, you will instantly connect with this song. The lyrics are relatable, I honestly can’t wait to be able to see this incredible band live.

The band have created an instant memorable track pack full of energy. The band have managed to create a single that shows off the bands own unique sound so well and really makes this track stand out.

Great job!
