New Single Rumours In The Stockroom out now
Hot Press Magazine's - Hot for 2018
With their previous releases receiving significant radio play in Ireland and the UK (RTE 2FM, iRadio, RTE 2XM, 4fm, Galway Bay FM, Flirt FM), as well as frightfully positive reviews from music press big-hitters such as Hot Press & Louder Than War UK, The Clockworks return, sat cross-legged and bold between the fine lines of ‘edgy indie’ and ‘tight punk’ with their new single “Rumours in the Stockroom”.
These Galway boys have gone from strength to strength since storming Body and Soul at Electric Picnic '17, and representing their country with pride at Indie Week, Toronto, reaching the Semi-Finals of the prestigious "Best of the Fest" competition.
With sharp observations, blunt instruments and swaggering vigour, the band distil “the immediacy of The Strokes or The Clash, with the melancholic love of words of The Smiths or The Streets”.

This Galway band has been on the lips of everyone that matters this year. From seeing them tonight it is easy to see why. They are something the Irish music scene has been overdue for some time.
Far from being the typical hyperbole of a music press trying to jump on the "next big thing", the praise with which The Clockworks were heaped was warranted.
The Clockworks illicit fond memories of blissful angst and attitude sorely missed in the industry today. They represent the very fabric of musical tenacity amid hordes of risk-less acts.
