Ritual Cloak is comprised of Daniel Barnett, formerly of the band Samoans, and drummer/producer Andrew Sanders.


The duo met in 2013 after Daniel answered an ad for a guitarist to join the backing band for singer Jemma Roper. An instant kinship was struck, with both Daniel and Andrew embracing experimentation and a shared love of electronic music.


After the split of Samoans in 2018, the pair began playing around with instrumental textures and piano-led ambient soundscapes, all resulting in their well-received debut in 2019. Early tracks such as Everyone Is Hungover So I Walked The Mountain Alone were quickly picked up by BBC Radio Wales and SWN Festival, culminating in their debut live show at the festival shortly afterwards.


In 2020 Ritual Cloak signed to Bubblewrap Collective Records, releasing a brand new track, I Lawr Ymhlith Y Tywyllwch, that revisits and rebuilds the glacial sonic wizardry of their debut brick-by-brick, glitch-by-glitch.
