Clock Opera :: "A Piece Of String" [Radio Edit]

Clock Opera is less a proper noun and more a description of a methodology. A one-man show, Guy Connelly creates a looping, metronomic archetecture, on top of which he lays the kind of pop songs that two-step between robotic and profoundly human. "A Piece Of String", the lead single from Clock Opera's coming full-length, is rooted around a chopped, looped mandolin and a buzzing, synth stab that rings like an alarm at the top of the most swollen parts of the arrangement. Picture a million clocks, waking up a million people, all organized and laced together by a single designer into something not only coherent, but brilliant.
