WL//WH Premiere: CLONE Unleashes the “Immutable” Chaos of Modern Disconnection


Originated by three dynamic stalwart musicians of the New York alternative rock scene, players in renowned acts such as Dead Leaf Echo, Namesake and Pilot to Gunner, Brooklyn denizens Clone, made up of LG Galleon, Gregg Giufre, and Paul Liziragga, started playing shows in the summer of 2019, building their fanbase organically, brick by brick. Word of their incendiary live shows has been spreading and each time they play, more are won over.

After an explosive Split LP with New Zealander kindred spirit group Swallow the Rat in May 2021, the Noise Rock / Post-punk trio is finally ready to unveil their long-anticipated debut album, scheduled to be released on the 6th of October, via 5BC Records // Disc Drive.

“Recorded and mixed by New York City legend, Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans) at his famed BC Studios (built by Brian Eno), its sound captures the nascent verve of Warsaw, especially in the icy timbre of the slashing guitar figures. Liziragga’s eminently melodic, racing basslines, locking in effortlessly with Giuffre’s metronomic, economical drumming. Galleon’s vocals exhibit a range he never showed in Dead Leaf Echo, and they’re clearer than ever, as he urges with an unrepentant rage, “Tell me a story about how you’ll bore me.” 

The second Clone‘s single preview, “Immutable”, WL//WH is pleased to Premiere, manifests, lyric-wise, the furious psyche of modern romance at the hands of deteriorating communication skills.

Loud, aggressive disharmonies flow into a flood of raging and conflicting emotions where droning reverb-injected riffs, angsty and obsessive excruciatingly ringing John McGeoch-esque guitar strains, fueled by relentless thick throbbing bass lines, and rumbling hard-hitting drum beats, resound and swell, around harsh, screaming vocals, in curt chaotic outflows from the anger and confusion of alienating moods.

Clone‘s debut full-length LP is due to be released on October 6, 2023, via 5BC Records & Disc Drive
