Delivering angular alt-rock cut through with deep electronic grooves, Cloth are a Glasgow three-piece comprising twins Rachael and Paul Swinton, and Clare Gallacher.
Recently featured on the soundtrack for BBC Three/Hulu’s 'Normal People', the band have recorded a BBC Music Introducing session at Maida Vale Studios and performed live sessions for the likes of Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music and Vic Galloway on BBC Radio Scotland. Cloth were playlisted on 6 Music this June and have received airplay from Elbow’s Guy Garvey (“I’ve been playing this album to death, I love it”), Lauren Laverne, Mary Anne Hobbs and Stuart Maconie, among others.
Having played across the UK, including a sold out show in London’s The Sebright Arms and a slot on the Creative Scotland Showcase bill at The Great Escape Festival, Cloth returned to London in March 2020 on the invite of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, for a headline show as part of his ‘Huw Stephens Presents…’ series.
Cloth’s self-titled debut album made the Shortlist for 2020’s Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award, and the band were named a ‘Tip for 2020’ by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens.
