"[There is] no question that the classical and indie realms can share a border where music turns pensive, knotty, and otherworldly."
-New York Times

Veil Waltz is a reflective look at the ephemera, the tidbits of ideas that somehow manifest themselves after being tucked away for a time. It is loops, instrumental grooves, contrapuntal play, cinematic scenes, and hints of songs. It speaks of curious circumstances and reminisces on fickle moments.

Veil Waltz is the eagerly anticipated prologue to Clogs' fifth album, The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton, a song-cycle composed by Padma Newsome. Their first album of songs after four instrumental releases, The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton includes special guests Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond, Sufjan Stevens, the Osso String Quartet, and Aaron Dessner and Matt Berninger of The National.

Clogs are four musicians from the United States and Australia whose work traverses time and place and through which seemingly disparate influences are seamlessly drawn in. They compose and improvise using sounds and textures from across the musical spectrum - the immediacy of folk and rock music, twisted Americana, the complexity of modern composition.
