| CLING an uplifting amalgamation of Massive Attack, Lamb, Jazzanova and Dubstar with a welcome touch of the unknown. CLING skilfully build songs that are deceptively light but in fact contain real depth and texture, the layers of cleverly programmed sounds successfully contrasting and complementing in equal measure.Warm, unusual and beguiling.
In July 2006 Cling released the debut CD Sonic Spells which was very well received by critics and audience alike. The music from Sonic Spells has been played on numerous radio shows including BBC Radio Essex and Capitals Ten17 in Harlow. All of the tracks from Sonic Spells were also used for several episodes of the cult Internet TV show Welcome To The Scene.
At the start of 2007 Cling started playing live, and have now played @ Sound Factory, Cafe de Paris,The Ambient Picnic Festival,Club Toro,Synthetic, The Cobden Club.Bar Music Hall and The Kelvedon Free Music Festival.The band played to their largest audience so far at the Kelvedon Free Music Festival on 11 July 2009, there were over 2,000 people.
Cling have continued to gig and gain new fans worldwide and release new tracks (available on all major download sites) via Clingmusic/Kudos Records.
In March 2010 Cling released the “Live Versions” CD/Download which contains remixes of songs that have been performed over the last year. One of the preview tracks “Beyond Your Dreams” was recently reviewed by John Reynolds (producer U2, Sinead o`Connor, Andrea Corr) in Computer Music issue 148 who said,"The impression is one of a well produced track led by a strong vocal, with a well balanced mix that evolves dynamically"
June 2010 a video to accompany Beyond Your Dreams was recently uploaded to YouTube,MySpace,Facebook etc and in two weeks the video has had over 31,000 views.
Cling have now embarked on a music video promotion to TV in the UK, Europe and USA and already the video has been playlisted by several TV Channels. A member of the band said “It just proves that independent artists can get airplay for videos and music on the same channels as the major artists if they have something good to offer”
