British band on the rise, Clock Opera will release their new single "Belongings" on May 9th via UK tastemaker label Moshi Moshi (known for the early championship of acts like Florence and the Machine), as well as making their way across the pond to Austin to showcase their dynamic live show which is garnering them praise and fans in leaps and bounds.
Produced by front man Guy Connelly, "Belongings" is already a highlight of their live set; an incredibly beautiful and emotive song, while the b-side is the understated brooding and delicate "Let Go The Lifeboats."
Clock Opera has been steadily building a reputation as purveyors of cerebral, original and utterly captivating music over the last year. Their first limited edition single "White Noise" is now a rarity and both "A Piece of String" and "Once and For All" released in 2010 have cemented the band's prolific future among their constant growing league of followers.
They have supported the likes of Yeasayer and Au Revoir Simone on their UK tours and have also delivered inspired remixes for the aforementioned artists as well as reinterpretations of The Drums and The Golden Filter.
Clock Opera will be performing at this year's SXSW festival for the first time, and wrapping up recording their debut album slated to see release later this year. Check Out The Track HERE and Video Teaser HERE
