I’m sure we’re all familiar with the two Manchester Turbo – Prog dudes, Cleft…right? If you’re not, then, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Goodness me, these two guys really have something special. Epicness oozes out of the sound in which they create with its highly addictive and consuming syncopated rhythms. Furthermore, the duo are effortless in their deliverance – everything single element is clear, every single element is sharp, straight to the point and HARD. If I had a pound for how many times I’ve mentioned Cleft over the past couple of years, I would be a very rich lady – but that’s enough of me.
Cleft‘s debut Bosh is utter art. Filled with intricacy, power and beauty – this release is an example of progression, Cleft have grown into something very interesting and I’m so excited for the future of Cleft, can we take a step back and remember that this is just two people…mind blowing. Nice one, Simm and Beesley.
PS: I double dare you to dance to it.
Bosh is released to the MASSES through their Bandcamp page on the 10th February. ‘BOSH’ will be available via download, CD or on Vinyl.
