Mechanic Membrane's music is born whenever there's enough spare time. Clock Hands took its form little by little during four years, reflecting experiences and feelings undergone during that period.
A stylistic groundwork is laid with trip hop, ambient, house and techno. And like its creator, the album is prone to melancholy. The resulting overall sound is distinctively Nordic - dark and gloomy, yet surprisingly warm, even cozy.
The songs are arranged chronologically but in a mirror image. In a sense the album is moving backwards, from the end to the beginning. It is up to the listener to decide which time period it is portraying.
The album is out now on streaming services and Bandcamp. This is a digital-only release.
