Hidden Door


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. 

Released to critical acclaim, Cloth’s self-titled debut album made the Shortlist for 2020’s Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award, with the band being named a ‘Tip for 2020’ by Huw Stephens.

Featuring 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.

“I’ve been playing this album to death, I love it”

Guy Garvey, BBC Radio 6 Music

“An album that rewards repeated listens, a richly abstract journey.” ̣̣

The List

“An emotive, beautifully textured offering that rewards close scrutiny”

The Skinny

“Mesmerizing. Fall into your speakers’ embrace and enjoy.”

The Grinding Halt

“This is a band who bond metal (“only the good stuff” – Paul), pop-punk, post-rock and – most importantly – pop influences to create something that doesn’t sound anything like any of those things. Bold, inventive music.

Euan Davidson, Podcart
