BBC Introducing with Tom Robinson on 6 music

Chosen by BBC Introducing Tom Robinson's crew on FreshontheNet as one of their top Fives and will be played on the show soon!

The tune reverberates with anarchic sublimated anger that calls us to take time back melding into a heavy bass driven groove, hints of dub, drum and bass with Leoncia’s guitar setting the clockwork pulse of this dark electro-beat scape. smashing up clocks has never seemed such a good idea…

LeonHeART aka Leoncia Flynn is a singer, musician and artist based in Munich, Germany. Musically she has kept diverse company with collaborators from Jazz, hardcore/grind punk, metal to soul and more sample-driven, synth/electronic music. She is also an artist, creating collashes and installations. A recent work called "TimeOUT' exhibited at the Crypt Gallery London came from a sense that there is no time available to think or 'play' within our current political, social and economic system that is free fcrom market forces and production.
Continuing on this theme of reclaiming and creating time she found an historical source that captured this beautifully; that of the 1820s and 30s British factory workers revolt against the newly installed factory clocks. They were objecting to their lives being taken over, reduced and owned by the factory owners and their commerce tick tock. Smash Up the Clocks was inspired by this.

This latest collaboration is with producer/bass player Tigersonic - Felix X, her past work with Aref Durvesh / Xkollective / Visionary Underground / Sonic Devis have received plays on radio 1 / bbc asian network . She has had music used in film and documentary, most notably a track included on Gary Oldman’s film Nil by Mouth.
Felix’s collaborative work involves inviting musicians to jam at her studio - protools is set to record - tea and beer is drunk and the fairy lights are turned on. The outcome is manipulated and mashed into lush dubscapes.
With smash up the clocks it was a little different as Leoncia brought a completed song to the table, but they used a similar strategy to expandalize the tune.

To smash up the clocks, to reach inside and pull out the cogs,

That measure my life, and let them all spill, let them glide across the floor,

just to keep things still, for just a little while..more

I’m going to throw away my watch, so that I’m blind to,

the tender tick tocks that has my life in its noose.

Stealing my attempts to gather up and muster

so I’ll take my sweet time and my a break to cut it.

Because the hands I relied upon, won’t give me time anymore,

Because the hands I relied upon, won’t give me time anymore.

To smash up the clocks because it’s not too late,

To rescue, to resuscitate, to argue for, to demonstrate,

we need some time out for this delicate magnificence,

this delicate magnificence
