Cloaks formed in 2020 through a shared passion for music and sound, with four of the five band members meeting while studying Audio Engineering at RMC. That solid grounding in music production and sound composition gives Cloaks a sophisticated and confident contemporary indie rock sound, and one that’s technically accomplished.

Cloaks’ five song EP ‘The 8th Floor’ was released in November 2022, soon followed by singles ‘Meaning of Life’ and ‘Headhunter’ in 2023. Each being well received on streaming platforms garnering various gig offers in Glasgow music venues Broadcast, Audio and King Tuts.

The Band have grown their fan base substantially including influential names such as renowned Scottish actor Robert Carlyle and play their next gig in King Tuts on the 26th of July.

Vocalist Thomas Trainer said:

“The song is about thinking of the past and wondering how life would be if you made a different decision and how it would impact your current life and emotions, whether it was going on a date or showing up to a family event”

Guitarist Finlay Harrison, said on the songwriting process:

“We like to use weird tunings and chord voicings when writing to try and avoid the block that can come from using the same familiar chord shapes over and over again. I was messing around with chord voicings due to the slightly different tuning and the end result is one of the strongest singles yet. This writing process is what makes our songs sound uniquely like us.”

Cloaks new single Mainframe is available to stream now on all music platforms.
