Clock Opera return with ‘Changeling’, the first taste of new music since their acclaimed 2013 debut ‘Ways To Forget’. The track opens with a hypnotic loop of church bells, recorded on a day off whilst touring Germany – contributing to a mysterious, haunting hymn of loss and disbelief. Whilst retaining aspects of the distinctive, homemade sample-led palette of their debut album, 'Changeling' introduces a darker, more rhythm-led sound and sets the tone for their second album, to be released in 2016. The stirring track marks exciting new territory for the band.
Formed in 2009, Clock Opera have toured with the likes of Alt-J, Django Django, Metronomy and Everything Everything, as well as performances across Europe, USA, Japan, Singapore and over 50 festivals. It was after touring ‘Ways To Forget’ that they returned to London to start working on new material. The trio will preview new music at their free show at London’s Old Blue Last on 26th November, before they head off to support Maxïmo Park in Europe. Clock Opera are Guy Connelly (vocals, samples, guitar, bass, piano, synths), Andrew West(guitar, bass, synths, video) and Che Albrighton (drums, samples, synths). + via the official facebook page here.
