Clock Opera's major debut album "Ways to Forget" has a unique sound, albeit very simplistic traditional instrumentation combined with heavy use of a synthesizer. Although this can often become redundant in the genre, this band has put together a catchy album that always changes from track to track. From the beginning you'll get the feel of a more radio friendly sound, switching over to something more aggressive and at some point even creating a feel for the eighties.
With the consistent change to their music throughout the album it never disappoints, even going as far to create tracks with a slow build up to a climactic finish. This isn't common for the "electronic friendly" indie genre and is much welcomed. The vocals are not easy to understand but are quite enjoyable, giving off a very 90's British sound.
While I believe this album is exceptional, you may want to look for their special edition that contains B sides. This will give you double the experience.
