OF CLOCKS AND CLOUDS
Named one of the Top 25 New Music Critiques by Music Connection, Of Clocks and Clouds have been praised for their “enchanting arrangements, intensifying interludes and attention grabbing guitar riffs.”(Artsy Magazine) Founded in 2013, Joe Salgo (vocals/guitar/electronics) and Ross Procaccio (drums/vocals/electronics) were born and raised in Brooklyn, a borough that has become an international brand. The pair pride themselves on standing apart from the shoegaze indie rock scene, which has erupted throughout their hometown, crafting a sound that pays homage to the days of L'amours, CBGB's and Coney Island High. Inspired by acts like The Black Keys, Pink Floyd, Beck and Queens of the Stone Age, OCAC combine classic and modern rock with tinges of electronic and psychedelic influences. Conquering their home territory, OCAC have played to crowds at The Knitting Factory, Arlene’s Grocery, Webster Hall Grand Ballroom and Studio, Pianos and SoFar Sounds. The two‐piece plan to take their sound nationally this year with "Better Off." Get a taste of their “elegantly placed vocals over dark, driving, electric guitar” (Audiofemme). ofclocksandclouds.com
