Bio

Cloning are a West Australian band whose music blends elements of rock, pop, shoe gaze and trip hop. The group made a name for themselves in the local Perth scene supporting the likes of Ocean Alley, and in 2019 released their debut EP ‘Pillars of Salt’. This featured the band’s single ‘Epilogues’ which was nominated for WAM Song of the Year. Pilerats said Cloning’s debut saw them, “refusing to be placed into a box; their sound the meeting point of many of their big influences – trip-hop, electronica, indie, dream-pop, psychedelic indie-rock”.

Cloning took shape among friends Nic, Felix and Jack during their final years at school. The untimely loss of a close friend and musician around this time caused them to invest heavily in their musical pursuits. They were soon joined by guitarist Bevan, who grew up in goldfields mining town Kalgoorlie; joining the band when he moved to Perth.

Cloning are touring Australia for the first time in December 2019.

This one's a slow burn, creeps under your skin and by the last minute you're nodding along. Tidy.

Yep lots of Radiohead in here, even some Tame! I'm a big fan of this ethereal vibe you've created.
