Formed in Galway and now living in London, The Clockworks are James McGregor (Vocals/Guitar), Sean Connelly (Guitar), Damian Greaney (Drums) and Tom Freeman (Bass). Making a unanimous decision to find their break in the UK capital, it proved a good one. Relocating in 2019, the quartet were signed by the legendary Alan McGee almost overnight.
Described by NME as “sh**-hot” and praised by CLASH for their “ferocious sense of purpose, with the careering post-punk guitar lines”, The Clockworks have unfurled a string of impeccable singles since their partnership with McGee began; gaining ground at-pace with the likes of “Feels So Real”, “Enough Is Never Enough”, “Can I Speak To A Manager?”, “The Future Is Not What It Was” and more in their growing arsenal.
Also hotly tipped by titles including The Guardian, The Independent, and Hot Press, the band have received frequent support from national radio stalwarts including BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac on her “New Names” showcase, BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq on his ‘Recommends' show, and received day-time radio play on RTÉ 2FM, and impressed the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer on Sirius XM.
