The Independent Culture

If you can't wait for the next album by Snow Patrol, Editors, White Lies or Keane, then Clock Opera are the new band for you.

Leader Guy Connelly lays claim to using found sounds and Burroughsian cut-up techniques, but with the exception of the middle of "Belongings", the end result is typical arena fodder. Every intro twinkles and every chorus swells effectively enough. But if indie carries on like this, we're gonna need a bigger landfill.
