In the nicest possible way, Clock Opera have been around the block a bit. It was back in the olden days of 2009 when we first proclaimed “we love Clock Opera more than our own children.” The reason? Mainly because of this song – Once And For All, a jubilant life affirming piece of pop music that was inspired by a theatre show called Once And For All We're Gonna Tell You Who We Are So Shut Up And Listen.

Now two and a half years later Once And For All has been re-recorded and readied for release with this new video - an album finally follows in spring. If the test of the best music is time then Once And For All succeeds in every damn way. No matter how many times we hear it this song makes us want to stand up, punch the air and truly believe that 2012 will be incredible.
Watch, listen and make sure your ceiling isn’t too low when you feel your fist rising upwards in glory. Oh and it's OK, our own children still love us, despite our proclamations of having to take second place. They understand our obsession with music.
