Clockwise premieres 'Hopeless' video featuring Holly Valance
As an artist, Clockwise is a resourceful audio pioneer who draws influences and snatches tones and noises from the most outlandish of places. He then melds his sundry sounds and distinctive vocals into an astounding orchestra of magnificently combative panache. He cracks open your cranium and fills it with a cacophony that will force you to see the world through a fresh pair of ears.
While enlivened by a myriad of retro wonders, 'Hopeless' is ultimately an earnest, cutting-edge vision. The striking contrast between Clockwise’s impassioned distress and Valance’s resolved forlorn beauty make this video a visually riveting work.
The Daily Telegraph stated, “He’s so good it’s almost unfair,” while KROQ enthused “Charismatic and wildly entertaining from the first chord, Clockwise is constantly set in fifth gear,” and Artist Direct concluded, “genuinely hip with a bewildering brilliance that warrants numerous listens.”
