He will embark on a campaign trail throughout the world with his unique blend of Heartland/electronic/Celtic-post punk, 80s, and New Wave music, Clockwise has not only found his voice, but he has also found his sound. The album is a deep dive into Andy’s signature songwriting and existential poetry new wave, classic Bowie-style pop, and the heart-wrenching poetry of Leonard Cohen & Nick Cave , Talking Heads, Malcolm McLaren, ESG, and LCD Soundsystem and even Bob Dylan.. Although touching on classic references Andy Clockwise is unabashedly original, with a sound and vision years in the making and a message all his own.
