Led by the gossamer vocals of Rachael Swinton, the textured indie rock of Cloth is both dreamy and angular. Following a string of songs that received radio support in their native U.K., the trio released their eponymous debut album in 2019.
Started by twins Rachael Swinton (vocals, guitar) and Paul Swinton (guitar) with drummer Clare Gallacher, Cloth formed in Glasgow in 2016. They spent the next couple of years writing, rehearsing, and ultimately recording at Chem19 Recording Studio (Mogwai, Deacon Blue). The band signed with Last Night from Glasgow within two weeks of posting their first song, "Demo Love," in April 2018. The label gave the song an official release two months later. Receiving airplay on various BBC stations and host-curated music programs, their second release, "Tripp," was remixed by producer Wuh Oh (Peter Ferguson), and they made their BBC Radio 1 debut with late 2018's "Old Bear." Cloth went on to play the BBC Music Introducing stage at Latitude Festival in mid-2019 before returning to the studio to put the finishing touches on their full-length debut. Titled Cloth, it arrived in November of that year. ~ Marcy Donelson
