The Clockworks are bowing out of 2020 with their new single ‘Enough Is Never Enough‘, a visceral statement of intent. The track is the latest and last in a series for Alan McGee‘s Creation 23 label which sees the Galway four-piece take aim at the injustices and prejudices rife in our society with an assault of straight-up punk rock. Complex and character driven in its narrative, the song follows the lives of separate but interconnected individuals in society: from a bigoted Café owner to beleagured kitchen porters, dreaming buskers to down-and-out beggars. Pulling together the fragments of our fractured society, ‘Enough Is Never Enough‘ creates a vivid collage that depicts its failings in one painstaking picture.

This was the last song we wrote in Ireland. I’d been working on the lyrics for ages. I like to write about the social or emotional by writing about a specific character or scene. I think focusing on the particular and the specific is the best way to get to the general and abstract… Musically, this song was all about getting the feeling right. We wanted it to be forceful and relentless but also for there to be enough space for melody and emotion.
