“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.

VS Colour
VS Colour
VS Colour (Echo Park, LA) fuse different styles ranging from Hip Hop to Rock bottom. Formed in 2012; the band consists of singer/instrumentalist Joe Bates, guitarist Alex Belmonte, bassist Wolfgang Woodcock and drummer Ivan Wayman.
Midnight Faces
Midnight Faces
Midnight Faces is an LA duo comprised of vocalist Phil Stancil and multi instrumentalist Matthew Doty. Barely into his teens, Matthew Doty began making music with childhood friend Jonny Pierce (of The Drums), resulting in a full-length album released by Columbia Records. At age twenty, he went on to co-found post-rock instrumental giants Saxon Shore with Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty), releasing three EPs, and two albums produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Tame Impala, Flaming Lips).

To better understand what The Fire Is Gone is, please understand what it isn’t: No fancy producers, no big name special guests, no one wearing robot costumes, no all-analog studio, and no songs recorded live to tape. The non-singing half of Midnight Faces is Matthew Doty who elaborates by explaining, “We made this album by ourselves and for ourselves. We made it in my apartment on a computer one track at a time. If you dig the tunes, cool. If you don’t, that’s cool, too.” Fair enough, but there’s a damn good chance you’ll be landing in the camp of the former. The album has received critical acclaim from the likes of SPIN, NYLON, AV CLUB, and CONAN O'BRIEN along with several local LA music blogs including BUZZBANDS LA, FREE BIKE VALET, and THE BURNING EAR.

Still, Doty asserts, “Just what L.A. needs –another fucking 80’s new wave band, right?” Well, no. But when the songs are as good as what Midnight Faces is cranking out, perhaps the listener should be the ultimate judge of that? In fact, The Fire Is Gone is an even more evolved take on the sound that Doty and vocalist Philip Stancil already had pretty damn near perfect on Fornication. “Phil and I no longer live in separate parts of the country,” Doty explains of the duo’s progression. “We were able to sit down and write together, no more file sharing.” Stancil elaborates, saying, “We hit on a lot of genres while working on this album, throwing out songs we didn’t like and re-working others to fit the mood.”

The bands debut album, Fornication, received acclaim from the likes of MTV BUZZWORTHY, MTV HIVE and NPR along with popular and influential music discovery websites such as UNDER THE RADAR, MY OLD KENTUCKY BLOG, EARMILK, and BAEBLE MUSIC among others.
