On the 12th June The Clockworks will release their new single ‘The Future Is Not What It Was‘, the track is the London-based band’s third single for Alan McGee‘s Creation 23 label. James McGregor of The Clockworks offers this insight into the track “This song is about trying to bring together two main ideas: The feeling that everywhere you look things are going wrong, to the point of cynicism, and the way that the idea of the future is better that its reality. Art and articles in the past would talk about 2020 and expect us to be driving flying cars in houses that clean themselves where nobody has to work. In reality we’re driving third hand Fiat Punto’s to 9-5’s that barely pay the rent. I guess the point is that the lifestyle may change but a lot of the problems are the same.” You can view the ‘The Future Is Not What it Was‘ video below
