“Downright Infectious” - Nylon Magazine

"Between thunderous percussion gallops and synth-bursts Andy Clockwise details a tale on love, life, and grief that is as timeless as it is so particular affecting in the modern era." - Grimy Goods

"Calling out debauchery, artifice and other sundry aspects of L.A. life. For his new music, Clockwise finds touchstones in 1980s post-punk and New Wave — think New Order, as narrated by weighty baritone of an arena rocker.” - BUZZBANDS.LA

"Practicing the art of reinvention Clockwise, along with bandmate Mathew Gardner, formally presented themselves under their new musical persona of Local Hero in September with the single, “The Big Think.” sweet shades of 80s New Wave tones and Clockwise’s penchant for expressing, exploring and exorcising the human darkness ..found on their forthcoming triple album "War Stories". It’s a work that he describes as, “a pop musical ode to human dysfunction, heartache, sex, grief, revolution, and the death of our youth.”- High Voltage Mag
Andy Clockwise is showing himself to be not only having an exciting 2019 but a prolific one with the release of his third single "The Lucky Ones" from his new triple album War Stories dropping in the future when, as the artist puts it, "the time is right." The official video for "The Lucky Ones" premiered at Flood Magazine and the track is also available on all digital streaming platforms.With the opening line If Rock and Roll is dead, then shoot me in the head "The Lucky Ones" is another Anthemic defiant anthem by a master of the human condition and sonic craftsmen. Mix Tears for Fears and Joshua tree U2 in a modern bowl of Bowie’s Low and we have the Australian/LA Local Hero's Anti-establishment mantra “The Lucky Ones”

Andy Clockwise mixes all aforementioned influences with what has become hi signature sound from his Los Angeles based “Basement Studios”, a mixture of new wave heartland with a tinge of australian 80s pub rock and electronica, sounding nostalgic at the same time as ultimately new. The song also introduces Rosa Pullman on the chorus, sounding always soulful deep and angelic.

Badtalkers
Badtalkers
By definition, BADTALKERS is an indie band. The Los Angeles-based quartet creates melodic rock music with the standard fare — bass, drums, guitars, synth, vocals. But that’s only by definition.

Citing acts from The Smiths to NWA as influences, BADTALKERS incorporate apparent elements of hip-hop into their sound, while approaching sensitive lyrical subject matter with poise and ease. It’s kind of like if the Beastie Boys covered the Pixies.

The band’s latest single, “No Pity,” is a perfect example of all their influences at work. The song begins with a steady synth line and electronic flares reminiscent of a hip-hop track, and when the drum kicks in, it’s apparent that simple beat is going to lead the way for the rest of the song. Vocalist Richard Leon doesn’t hold anything back as he sings about the dark parts of LA in a general enough way that it could be any city.

“‘No Pity’ touches on the gun violence and drug epidemic in the United States,” drummer Christian Edusada explains. “We wanted to reflect on our daily experiences living in urban communities, as well as current events involving police brutality, protests, and acts of terrorism within the country.”

Though these domestic terrors have been put in the spotlight in recent years, witnessing gang violence and drug deals/usage is nothing new for the members of BADTALKERS. Edusada grew up in Cocoa, FL — the second most dangerous city in the state — and recalls his 8th grade classmate being shot and killed in a drive by. With the other members residing in Compton, CA, their childhoods were not much different.

“Our band is true to ourselves, it makes a statement and doesn't really fall into what most bands are doing.” says Leon. “We find most of our inspiration from everyday struggles and things that try to keep us down and we try to channel those emotions into our songs. We want to be a voice for those who have gone through the same things we do.” That honesty and self-awareness is at the core of every BADTALKERS song, and it’s one that unquestionably separates them from their indie peers.
