Jess Nolan - Clockwork (Single)
3rd single from Jess Nolan's forthcoming album '93 (out September 8).
From Jess: "We tracked “Clockwork” while the movie “Labrynth” was playing on the studio TV on mute, and I’d like to think David Bowie’s spirit came through for the sonic energy of it. My friend, David Williford, played saxophone to build the swells and soaring lines heard throughout the song. Co-producers, Will, Ross, and I had a field day building the layers that unfold as the track progresses. I see the lyrics of this song as a letter to myself on a continued journey of self-awareness. With age, I’m gaining new perspective on my patterns and instead of chastising myself in the process, I’m working to cultivate a kinder inner voice. We have the power to choose how we talk to ourselves. I hope the feel of this song is a reminder to face what’s uncomfortable with gentle honesty and shake free any prideful attempts to undermine ourselves."
