Those who believe twins can communicate without speaking will find much to love about Cloth. It’s not that the duo indulges in cryptophasia, but they do so much with so little. The four-track EP never hurries or loses its sense of itself. Minimalist vocals, sometimes whispered, layer over measured musical backing. There’s a sense of creeping paranoia throughout, but never vulnerability or fragility. Opener ‘Old Stories’ ends forcefully while the rhythm of ‘Lucid’ leads you to the edge of somewhere you’re not sure you should be. ‘Low Sun’ and ‘Sidecar’ maintain the impalpable tone without repeating or dropping the mystique.
