Clock Opera


DGM Presents are delighted to welcome Clock Opera 'home' to The Louisiana as part of their rescheduled new album tour on Wednesday 28 October. The band really can't wait to finally play Bristol again!

Advance tickets are just £10 (+bf) so snap them up quickly before they're gone!

'Be Somebody Else', released in September, is the first track from the band's eagerly anticipated 3rd album ('Carousel').

“I’ve seen the future and it looks just like today, with all the failures and the waiting cut away” sings Guy Connelly, Clock Opera’s frontman. The energetic single conjures up a mosaic of staccato synths, distorted bass clarinets and blissed ambient textures, as Clock Opera delve into the schizophrenic distance between self-acceptance and the hyped-up versions we present online.

The wonderfully atmospheric title track with it's beautifully repeating piano refrain followed in November with the new album ('Carousel') promised for 7 February.

Clock Opera originally rose to prominence in 2012 with their debut ‘Ways To Forget’, together with a raft of well-loved remixes for Everything Everything, Christine & The Queens, Metronomy, Blood Orange, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marina & The Diamonds amongst many others.

Following extensive worldwide touring (with Alt-J, Metronomy, Django Django) their 2017 follow-up ‘Venn’ explored darker territory. Stand-out track ‘Whippoorwill’ became their most-streamed song to date (with over 3 million plays on Spotify!)

Following the departure of original guitarist Andrew West, Clock Opera now take the form of a compact three-piece: Guy Connelly (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, production), Che Albrighton (drums), and Nic Nell (keyboards, bass, vocals, production).

The venue is 16+ and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
