A mosaic of staccato synths, distorted bass clarinets and blissed ambient textures, Clock Opera’s energetic new single ‘Be Somebody Else’ delves into the schizophrenic distance between self-acceptance and the hyped-up versions we present online.
'I saw you living half a life when I thought you were living two. You’re at the mercy of what you think I think of you. You’ve got to be somebody else.' Clock Opera rose to prominence in 2012 with their debut ‘Ways To Forget’, together with a raft of well-loved remixes for Everything Everything, Christine & The Queens, Metronomy, Blood Orange, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marina & The Diamonds amongst many others.
Following extensive worldwide touring (with Alt-J, Metronomy, Django Django) their 2017 follow-up ‘Venn’ explored darker territory. Stand-out track ‘Whippoorwill’ became their most-streamed song to date.
Following the departure of original guitarist Andrew West, Clock Opera now take the form of a compact three-piece: Guy Connelly (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, production), Che Albrighton (drums), and Nic Nell (keyboards, bass, vocals, production).
‘Be Somebody Else’ is released on 20th September 2019 via League Of Imaginary Nations / !K7 Collective
