Cloth Announce New Album ‘Secret Measure’, Share New Song

    Cloth, the Glasgow-based twin-sibling duo of Rachael and Paul Swinton, have announced a new album. Secret Measure, their first LP on Rock Action Records, lands on May 5. The follow-up to 2022’s Low Sun EP was produced by Ali Chant. Today, Cloth have shared a video for the lead single ‘Pigeon’, which was directed by Bristol’s Clump Collective. Check it out below.

    “With ‘Pigeon’, we set ourselves the challenge of writing a bold, infectious bop which retained some of the slightly jarring, dissonant elements which always excite us and feature in a lot of our work,” the duo explained in a statement. “The song was born from one riff Rachael wrote which we both fell in love with and, through its development, ended up becoming one of the defining songs of the record. Big splashes of analogue synth – a world we fully embraced for the first time on this album – underpin a driving pop song which lyrically examines the importance of teaching yourself to try and be okay with the unknowns of the future, even if things seem uncertain and overwhelming in the present.”
