“Clocks & Clouds is one of the most unique and engaging bands I have heard in quite some time. Their mixture of rock, classical and instrumental tracks will arouse your senses and keep you coming back to see, no pun intended, what makes them tick.”
“Clocks and Clouds are not your typical band. Their fusion of classical music with rock elements is one of the coolest sounds I’ve heard so far from the hundreds of artists I’ve heard in the past few weeks. . . Their music is unique and powerful and insights a great deal of emotion. I love this band and the music they make.”
