A portable source of Clockwork Monkey words and music.
"Great lyrics, that's the real strength here..." - Chris Scadden, Radio Triple J (Australia).
In a nod to American anti-folk, this project by Melbourne songwriter, Brendan Bonsack, delivers wry social commentary wrapped in an off-kilter, DIY-style of alternative pop.
Employing a mixture of traditional rock and folk instruments, found objects, borrowed sounds and digital skulduggery, Clockwork Monkey has found its voice in a mischievous and vulnerable form of storytelling. Chrissy Misso brings her charming vocal style, and bassist Josh Waddell his trademark cruising finger-work.
This mobile app allows you to stream songs from Clockwork Monkey albums, as well as access lyrics and other materials.

A Wi-Fi connection is best for listening to the music, but 3G has been tested and can work well depending on signal strength!
