The Cleats


The third song cycle by the Cleats is about the unsung mechanic-hero named ‘Johnny’. The album adapts various synth-pop electronic sounds from the 1980s. Included in the mix are experiments in song writing: “The North” is unusually spare and intense and “The Other John” with its retro-guitar motif pays homage to the queer singer-songwriter John Grant, a favoured artist.

Red Horizon Blues

The Cleats ‘Front Person’ goes acoustic, musically harkening back 50 years to the folk scenes of Greenwich Village and Yorkville — delivering melodically melancholic lyrics that conger joy and pain.
