The Clockworks Releases New Song “Endgame”
- Irish alt-rock band The Clockworks, consisting of James McGregor, Sean Connelly, Damian Greaney and Tom Freeman, released a new song “Endgame” on March 18, 2022.
The song will appear on their upcoming self-titled debut EP, which is set to be released on April 1, 2022.
It was written by James Rohan McGregor. The song is inspired by the Samuel Beckett play of the same name.
James McGregor said of the song, “The idea for the lyrics was to have this character who’s a bit obnoxious playing a game of pool at the pub, and as the song progresses we get to peel him back and see that the game he’s playing is really against himself. The title, apart from relating to the game in the song, is a reference to Beckett’s play Endgame, which we thought touched on the themes/ideas/feelings of the song. I also liked the way that Beckett’s play had a through line of a chess game, like this song has a through line of a game of pool.”
The debut EP comprises 4-track, including “Money (I Don’t Want To Hear It”, “Feels So Real”, “The Temper” and of course “Endgame”.
