Clock Opera

So there I am, spending some time last week reminding myself of how good The Blue Nile were (have you heard Hats? it’s amazing), and along comes a tune could well have been made by the elusive Glasgow trio if they had been much younger, cooler dudes with fizzier synths, bigger beats and a more experimental bent. Oh, and even cooler mates to remix their tunes. But, separated by decades, the main thing they have in common is proper good songs and the uncanny ability to put a a shot of soulfulness into electro-whatever. They’ve got a new single out (Clock Opera, not The Blue Nile, don’t be silly) which is here, and if you like that, head over to their myspace to check out Once and For All, which is even better.

    I absolutely adore the stuff Clock Opera have put out so far. White Noise is great (and the b-side is equally good - a little Radiohead-esque maybe?). I think I said in a bubble of excitement that still hasn’t been popped that I love Clock Opera more than my own children. Yes, you’re right Once And For All is even better - one of the most life affirming tunes I’ve heard this year. Blimey I need to calm down.

    If you fancy reading a short interview I did with the band you can catch it here

    Yeah, they (he?) are so much better than most other electro stuff around at the moment. I’m really pleased to have discovered them, even if I have been slow on the uptake. Nice interview, btw.
