Galway City, County Galway
Honest and authentic Indie-Punk that tells stories of life as a young adult in 2018.
The Clockworks take the energy, ferocity and driving rhythms of early Punk and furnish this with angular guitar hooks. This forms the foundation for hip-hop inspired, machine gun vocals that spit out wry social commentaries which lie somewhere between Slaves, The Streets and The Smiths.
