What's the meaning behind the band's name?
Igor Reznik: The most valuable resource that we have in life is time. Its a resource that there is never enough of. Clocks are always a reminder that time is ticking. So with those thoughts we changed the spelling of "Clocks" to "The Clox" and settled on that to represent the band
How the band started??
Denis Orynbekov: As most bands start, with two accoustic guitars. Ruslan and me moved to New York from Kazakhstan with a dream and a determination to start a band. After a couple of months in New York we met Igor at a neighborhood bar. We started jamming and playing at open mikes. Igor at that time played rhythm guitar. We also met a basist named Alex Prokofyev that left the band in late 2009. We evolved quickly and seemed to get better and better gigs. It became kind of a family for us.
Russel Bay: Yeah. The studio became our home.
What's the message to transmit with your music??
Igor Reznik: There are many messages it really depends on the song. But all songs are about the distance between love and death.
What's your method at the time of writting a song??
Russel Bay: Denis has written over 200 songs. Before we recorded our first album Denis would bring the raw accoustic song and we would add different nuances to the music and change the lyrics. The songs that we have been writing after the recording of the album tend to be a more of a combined creative process. One of us brings an idea and we work on it together creating the song from scratch.
Which is your music influences??
Denis: We are influenced by any quility made music. Everything from Maroon 5 to Carccas.
What plans do you guys have for the future??
Russel: We try not disclose our future plans until they come true.
Which has been the funniest prank you guys have been or took part while on tour or after a show??
Denis:We are not really a prank type of group.
Igor: But here is a small anecdote. We were performing in Irving Plaza, NYC. The incident took place during a solo on one of the songs. We were so into the song that me and Denis were all over the stage. And right before the pause in the music before he has to sing I hit Denis's face with my forehead and blood started pouring from his nose. The crowd loved it but it was hard for him to sing the rest of the song.
If you guys were stranded in the middle of nowhere after a show or while on tour. The help is 65 miles away from where you guys are, ¿Who would you guys send to look for help? And if while the rest wait, there's no food and the only way to feed yourself is by eating each other, ¿Who would you eat first?
Russel Bay: This is easy. Denis would go get help. We would eat Igor cause he has the most meat. And I would stay and cook, because I am the best cook out of the tree of us.
Which country you guys would love to play?
Denis, Igor, Russel: Japan and England
With which bands you guys would love to share stage??
Denis: Out the bands that play today, probably Muse.
Are you guys OK, with the direction the band is going actually?
