Irish five-piece outfit Clockwork Noise
are fascinated by juxtaposition – the marriage of quiet and loud, classical and contemporary, pretty and ugly, chaos and order. Their debut album Whethermachines
is the culmination of a long journey exploring this concept. A large number of their songs evolved from two years of performing live, which spun into an intense pre-production phase, marshaled by Torsten Kinsella of God Is An Astronaut
and finally after several years of experimentation nine tracks were cemented into place by Ivan Jackman of Silverline Studios
. The last song of the full-length, “The Tourists” provides a good taster for the combination of all these ideas integrating a refined string section, frantic digital noise, delicate harmonising, intricate guitar work, and sincere vocals and lyrics.
