The Clockworks – Westway
Irish four-piece The Clockworks share new single Westway from upcoming debut album Exit Strategy. Singer James McGregor shares: “We were inspired by the writing and production of ‘50s Doo-wop, Phil Spector and Motown. Westway is the album’s final track, so we are beginning the album’s story with the last scene in the same way that some of the great films, like Goodfellas, begin at the end.” The album is a series of snapshots, telling the story of a group of characters trying to navigate through life. The Clockworks weave pop sensibilities with noisy, post-punk, rock-influenced stylings. The songs seem swaggering and dark yet often have an epic, nostalgic quality.
