Alternative Rock Band

The Clox began its existence in 2009 when two friends, Denis Orynbekov (guitar, lead vocals) and Ruslan Baimurzin (drums), moved from Kazakhstan to New York in pursuit of a dream. In New York the two were joined by Igor Reznik (bass) and thus the trio was complete.

In 2010, The Clox released their debut album ”READY TO STARVE”. The effort was noticed and in that same year the beach accessory store “Caribbean Joe”, on their site, recommended the song ”Faces” of the album as one of the top 20 “Toe Tapping Tunes” alongside songs by artists such as Sting, U2, Madonna, Kings of Leon, Weezer, Carlos Santana, and Coldplay.
