AUDIO: Cloak – “Hallucinations”
Experimental dreamcore artist Cloak recently dropped his debut album, and he describes it as “a reflection of what he has been going through in his life.” It’s dreary, meditative, and desolate like having melancholy dreams of your childhood surroundings. The second track features lyrics of drowning in an ocean of your feelings, while the fourth deals with being so depressed that you hope to detach from reality. It’s a profoundly tortured record that is especially relatable for those struggling with severe isolation right now. Robert Puccini is featured on the fifth track. Cloak also has a live recording titled “Nonexistence” on Bandcamp, which premiered on Eli Smith’s radio show Remote Resonance in May.
