CLOCK OPERA: Live at The Academy 2, 26 October
Following the release of their acclaimed debut album ‘Ways To Forget’, Clock Opera have announced a return to Dublin’s Academy on Friday 26th October. Tickets €13.00 incl. booking fee are on sale this Friday 15th June from Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.ie
After their incredible and widely received show at The Village in May and their rapturously received support slots with The Temper Trap and Maximo Park, there can be no doubt, that live, Clock Opera offer one of the most exciting, ambitious and experimental takes on indie-pop.
Producer, remixer and Clock Opera mastermind Guy Connelly seeks out his musical building blocks in the most unlikely places. A World War II ammunition case slams on a car park floor; a bouncing basketball thuds in a reverberant school hall; shoes squeak on a squash court. Tin cans, pots and pans, hand fans, old springs and other things of metal. Lighters, glass, cocktail flasks, trains that pass, harps in bits, guitars from skips, woodwind, brass, everything made slow and fast.
