Cleft are two blokes who really should know better by now. Describing themselves as playing “turbo-prog” for a laugh when they first formed in late 2011, the odd genre title now seems to have stuck. After releasing two EPs in 2012, John & Dan loaded their gear into the back of a petulant automobile and toured around the UK, surviving on service station coffee and houmous alone. When this ran out, they started working furiously on their debut full length release called "BOSH!", which was released in February 2014 and they describe as “slightly better than a kick in the face”.
Since the start we've been condensing 14 minute prog songs into 3 minutes and having a lot of fun doing it.
Cleft are influenced by all types of new music and love to hear new things, so get in touch if you've got something you want to share.
