LISTEN TO "XIII" HERE
Immersed in a delicately sculpted universe of otherworldly vocals and hypnotic guitar strings, comes the debut EP -XIII' from London-via-Melbourne 19-year old, Cloves. Having amassed a cult status with almost a million Spotify streams, a #2 spot on Hype Machine, #3 on the AMRAP Air Charts as well as BBC Radio 1 airplay, the soulful siren has also just been announced to support UK songwriter, SOAK on her return Australian tour in January 2016.
The EP was written with the help of Lana Del Ray and Sia collaborator, Justin Parker as well as Rich Cooper who has worked with the likes of Tom Odell and Mumford and Sons.
Across it's four tracks, -XIII' explores the fragile, raw terrain of a fleeting but all encompassing romance. Stripped back and simplistic, the EP opens with debut single, -Frail Love' which put her in the spotlight. -Don't You Wait' follows suit which was synced in the US in a key scene in Vampire Diaries - it has since had over 25k Shazam tags and was the #2 most tagged song from a tv show in the US the week it aired. Then follows the acoustic -Everybody's Son', closing out with her new offering, -Don't You Forget About Me', the sonic spectre of a broken heart.
