a bit of pop, bit of rock, a little old school, maybe a bit folky…” – Altrefuge

“There are hints of RHCP, QOTSA and various other acronyms in the sound of this beauty from Clockwork Radio, yet ultimately the song they have created is their own. And what a peach it is. 5/5 “  AAA Music

Beginning life as a side project in rural Wales, Clockwork Radio have since explored half of Europe, playing anywhere from rooftops to boats and festival stages. Their engagement with the audience and intense live presence have become cornerstones of the band’s reputation.

In late 2013, after two years on the road and four self-released EPs, the four piece took to Manchester’s 80 Hertz Studios to record their debut album ‘No Man Is An Island’. Completed in just two days, the album sees the band take a completely new approach to the way they record; it is a snapshot of their live sound, capturing the energy and character of their live shows.

The idea for the album was to have a live, raw and honest record of where we are as a band. It seemed out of place and quite strange to record like this considering how most music is recorded and sounds recently, but to us it’s what makes music special and honest. Rich Williams (singer and guitarist).

Following on from the success of the sold-out album launch in October, the new year opens a dramatic new chapter for Clockwork Radio.

No Man Is An Island is simply energetic, captivating and showcases each musicians creativity and musical ability. The releaseh has been described as ‘each member of the band painting part of a musical mural to create an intense and vibrant sound that embodies good times in the sunshine.’ This act is bursting with potential and their latest release resonates their talents.

No Man Is An Island is released via Poly Tune and is available to buy digitally via iTunes and physically via the band’s official site.
