We must live outside of passion, beyond sentiment, in the harmony of a true work of art, in that enchanting order. We must love one another so much that we live outside of time. Detached. Detached.

--Steiner in La Dolce Vita, F. Fellini, 1960

CLOCK HANDS STRANGLE HAS COMPLETED THEIR SECOND FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, "DISTACCATI," TO BE RELEASED JANUARY 2009. "Distaccati" is at once a natural and perplexing progression from the band's debut full-length, "Redshift/Blueshift," with bolder, more polished songwriting and well-studied lyrics that cast the listener as a pilgrim on a relentless journey--through an infernal outer-space guided by Walt Whitman (where Job is spotted wailing in a heap of dark matter, and Castor and Pollux face off in an astrological boxing match), across an arid desert and a frozen desert, through New York city and an Alabama cotton field--from the opening to final track. The album's title track (and its first) is currently available for streaming.

In a review of 'Redshift/Blueshift,' Amplifier referred to the songwriting of Clock Hands Strangle as "impeccable, with lyrics that are full of swoops and swirls, properly aligned to tight instrumentation." Formed in 2004 in Melbourne, FL, Clock Hands Strangle has been refining their thoughtfully-crafted, lyric-driven music for four years--the result are precise compositions that, with repeat listens, reveal a rewarding complexity to the listener.

Tour History includes two extensive tours of the eastern half of the U.S., two tours of the east coast, a brief Florida tour with Do Make Say Think, and a showcase at this year's South by Southwest.
