Soundtrack for running – Cleft

Having the pleasure of seeing Cleft headline at the Brixton Windmill, a few weeks back, supported by The Jorneta StreamBermuda Ern and True AmericanI was pleasantly surprised to hear such a wall of noise coming from an instrumental two-piece, a drummer and guitarist, from Manchester.
Forming in 2011 and coining their genre as “turbo-prog” these guys are extremely talented with a light sprinkle of silliness and good kick to the cranium.

Not easily an instant mega-fan, they blew me away, and I had no choice but to buy their album AND t-shirt.
