Andy Clockwise is basically a living legend in the LA gig/party/dj/ scene, Holly Valance stated in a blog on her website, after collaborating with Clockwise as the featured vocalist on 'Hopeless', the second single taken from his Dancing World EP. Holly now also appears in the music video that was premiered in the US last week via AXS.com. #clockwisemusic @andyclockwise

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.”
