Premiere: Cloning offer an introduction with their debut EP, Pillars of Salt

The indie-dream-pop band work with an amalgamation of sounds on their six-track debut EP - out tomorrow.

Hailing from the genre-less haze of Perth's live music scene, Cloning are a rising west-coast four-piece 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 – all swirled together in a witch's pot of hazy, guitar-back moments. Debuting with this year's Special and Epilogues just a few weeks back, it's a sound that's obviously working, seeing the group nominated for WAM's Song of the Year competition and supporting a range of acts amongst Australia's most exciting – Ocean Alley, for example – to deepen their place on the live music circuit – the need to stand out essential in a city where our live music world is seemingly hitting peak after peak.

Cloning's debut EP, Pillars of Salt, is an introduction to their sound – or lack their of. Spanning six tracks, the EP swerves between hazy dream-pop and nostalgic indie-electronica, which is then layered with Massive Attack-esque trip-hop beats and swirling, psych-leaning vocals which again, further deepen their sound and their range as a band just finding their beginnings. "We felt finally lived up to our standards and had our own sound. Hardest we’d worked so far on our music so it was really rewarding seeing it come to life in the studio after months of demoing the songs at home," the band say on the EP. You can feel that accomplishment in their work, in how no matter what sound they approach, they seemingly knock it out of the park.

The full EP is out and live tomorrow, but as a special treat, we're exclusively premiering it a day early. Dive into the EP below, and introduce yourself to a band who – if they get what they deserve – may soon be amongst the Perth heavyweights they're inspired by. Then, catch them at The Bird on September 11th – more information HERE.
