Clockwise has cultivated his craft to an adept level, evident in his prolific live performance history. Having played a supporting hand in major tours such including The Black Keys, Wolfmother, The Wailers and The Strokes' front man Julian Casablancas, the curiosity surrounding Clockwise is continuing to gain momentum internationally and here in Australia.

The EP, whilst sometimes dark in nature, shines light through on the latest upbeat single 'Hopeless', featuring the sultry vocals of Holly Valance. The eletro laden track balances Clockwise' inimitable production flavor with an equally as enticing vocal flair. Remnants of late 80s early 90s themed dance floor melodies provide a perfect backdrop to a production carefully curated by Clockwise over the last 12 months.

"I had this track kicking around for a while and thought wow, this is a little too much for me to just be on it by myself, so i thought a duet might work, I was talking to Holly (Valance) because we had been friends from Hollywood when she lived here and I thought, well maybe she might be cool with walking on the darker side of pop... Anyways she was….. We cut the song in 2 hours in my basement studio and she was awesome. She sounds as if Kate Bush was an angel and came down to tell me to stop whining."
