Of Clocks and Clouds have combined past musical influences with a modern, somewhat futuristic sound with their latest release.

“Better Off,” the title track from their new album, has moments of melancholy, moments of vibrancy, and a mix of both throughout. It sets the mood for the project, which is an album well-suited to a New Yorker’s busy commute, when one just needs a moment to center themselves.

The Brooklyn-based alternative rock duo consists of Joe Salgo (vocals/guitar/electronics) and Ross Procaccio (drums/vocals/electronics), who produced Better Off together as well.

“The songs are about the stages of heartbreak, grieving and ultimately acceptance. There's a fair amount of our blood, sweat and tears on this record. We hope you like the taste,” Of Clocks and Clouds told Myspace in an exclusive interview for the album’s premiere earlier this week.

The band came together three years ago, and they’ve played some of New York City’s most popular venues--Pianos, The Knitting Factory, and Arlene’s Grocery, to name a few. Now, they’ve got their eyes set on the national music scene.

About Of Clocks and Clouds

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.
