Stoke on Trent’s CLKWRK release new single Fractures
Stoke on Trent band show that everything is running like CLKWRK with the release of their debut single, video, and tour announcement!
CLKWRK combine blues and rock with electronic music by creating every sound – electronic and organic – themselves – and they do it live. The band has just been added to the New Rock Show playlist at Planet Rock Radio and have also announced a UK support tour with Electric Six in November and December.
The debut single Fractures marks the first of six months of new music. Every single month the band will drop something new, produced by themselves and mixed by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman), with music videos, imagery and new releases underpinning every month.
On the song, the band say: “The song itself is one of the six we’re releasing over the next six months. After spending a year hunting around for a producer who could capture the sound we were looking for, we decided to go about creating these sounds ourselves, tracking down one of our favourite mix engineers in the UK, Chris Coulter (Having fallen in love with his work with Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman and his work recording for Boss’ synth pedal adverts, you can imagine why this jumped out at us) to mix the tracks for us”.
“Fractures is about that feeling we’ve all had before – when we’re feeling at our most tender and every syllable of a word can cut deeper than we ever imagined. Sticks and stones can absolutely break our bones, but words can break us as people” – Nick Pilgrim.
The single and video are out now, on the usual platforms, and the support tour with Electric Six kicks off on November 29th in Hull.
