Revolving broad synth strokes introduce a rhythmic striking guitar that sets the pace of this dark electro-beat scape.
Fragile yet rooted vocals sing of anarchic sublimated anger..that calls us to take time back..they meld into a heavy bass driven groove, hints of dub, drum and bass with a scathing guitar lead…
smashing up clocks has never seemed such a good idea...

Guitar in hand Leoncia bowled into Felix’s north London studio looking for a new producer for the fresh/latest songs she'd written. They hit it off straight away.
Felix loved the original stripped down version of Smash up the Clocks but suggested they tried a more electronic, rough version as a collaboration.
What you hear & see is the fruit of that conversation and exploration.
smashing up clocks has never seemed such a good idea…
To smash up the clocks, to reach inside and pull out the cogs,
That measure my life, and let them all spill, let them glide across the floor,
just to keep things still, for just a little while..more
I’m going to throw away my watch, so that I’m blind to,
the tender tick tocks that has my life in its noose.
Stealing my attempts to gather up and muster
so I’ll take my sweet time and my a break to cut it.
Because the hands I relied upon, won’t give me time anymore,
Because the hands I relied upon, won’t give me time anymore.
To smash up the clocks because it’s not too late,
To rescue, to resuscitate, to argue for, to demonstrate,
we need some time out for this delicate magnificence,
this delicate magnificence
