On January 28, Cloakroom will release their new album Dissolution Wave via Relapse. The group have already shared one new track from the album, “A Force at Play,” and today they’re following that with the leadoff track, the heavy, crunchy shoegaze track “Lost Meaning.” Check it out via lyric video below.
Cloakroom’s Doyle Martin says of the new track in a press release, “It’s the first step out of your comfort zone into unfamiliar territory. When you cross that threshold what do you take with you to maintain some sense of the Self? If anything, leaving for a ‘land of silver gilt’ is referring to a gilded age, an egocentric near-future our protagonist is tasked to meander around which of course mirrors our own. Our humble songsmith is singing to the Spire and the Ward of Song, the great filter, the barometer of creative thought in this universe. With any luck, they’ll be acknowledged and their voice won’t get lost in the discordance of meaningless creativity for the wrong reasons.”
Dissolution Wave follows 2017’s Time Well.
