New to Rock Action! Cloth are Glasgow based twins Paul and Rachael Swinton and we are pleased to announce the first release for us by way of a 4 track EP. Cloth began performing together in 2018, influenced by the dreamlike vision of Cocteau Twins and The XX. In 2019 the band released their self-titled debut album to critical acclaim, making the shortlist for the Scottish Album of the Year Award, while also being named as a “Tip for 2020” by BBC Radio’s Huw Stephens.
This latest collection builds on the band’s masterful use of space, delicate harmonies and glassy guitar textures to create a compelling unified sound that is both minimal and sparing, while also lush and layered - from the opening hum and swell of ‘Old Stories’ to the icy percussive pulse of ‘Lucid’, the dreamlike harmonies of ‘Low Sun’ and the stirring guitar melodies of ‘Sidecar’.
