Clock Opera: ‘Belongings’ video and new single out now on Moshi Moshi
aaamusic | On 20, May 2011
Clock Opera released their new single ‘Belongings’ last week on Moshi Moshi. Produced by front man Guy Connelly and already a highlight of their live set, it’s an incredibly beautiful and emotive song, while the b-side is the understated brooding and delicate ‘Let Go The Lifeboats’. ‘Belongings’ is undoubtedly Clock Opera’s strongest single to date and with their recent signing to Moshi Moshi, a fast growing reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting live acts, and their debut album expected in the autumn, 2011 is looking like a great year for the band.
The video for Belongings was directed and produced by the band’s Andy West with some notes on his creative process:
Lesson number 1: Don’t think you can achieve something with £20 and a ball of string that Spielberg could only achieve with millions.
Lesson number 2: Simplicity is always the best policy, particularly when there’s no budget.
Lesson number 3: Be open to happy accidents – they could end up being the best bits.
Lesson number 4: You’re friends are all you’ve got – treat them kindly and feed them well.
