This Morning Call – “Clockworks” (play)
Way past emo, down the street from melancholy, around the corner from Euro-pop despair we find Manchester’s Ben Heyworth (AKA This Morning Call) meditating on loss, loving, and living another day. “Clockworks” sounds a bit like I expect Depeche Mode would, had they started 20 years later. But such comparisons and musings aside, this is a really nice piece that stands on its own merit. Partly cloudy pop with the promise of sunshine. I like it.
