1. A style of rock music that emerged in England in the late 80s that featured blisteringly loud and dreamily reverberated feedback. Recently revived by electronic bands like M83 and Ulrich Schnauss. Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive are good shoegazer bands.
2. To play an instrument (especially a guitar) with one’s head down, as though gazing at one’s shoes.

The Clockwork Army crosses a wide range of genres, from dance-punk to indie rock to shoegazing, leaving the listener at loss for words when attempting to define their sound. However, this is something the band prides itself on, a sound that can appease the musical palettes of a variety of listeners. They define their sound as undefined because they constantly progress as musicians and create music that is a direct reflection of their own abilities and emotions at the time of composition. Regardless of this undefinable sound, it is safe to define Neveu’s voice as beautiful and one that could fit just as seamlessly in a jazz band as it does in this indie band. Petti’s bass lines are steady and driving, providing the groundwork for Wheeler and Neveu’s mind-blowing melodies. Together, these three musicians create a sound, atmosphere, and energy for those who adore beautiful and powerful music.
