Baraclough are a London-based trio consisting of a classically-trained musician, a self-taught musician, and a non-musician.

With a distinctive palette of woozy electronics, raw and processed recordings, combined with vocals and abstract sounds, Baraclough produce a unique aural aesthetic that is hypnotic yet agitating, intimate yet awkward.

Since their inception in 2006, Baraclough have performed in a variety of bizarre locations such as a Kilburn rock pub and a former Turner Prize winner's stock cupboard. In March 2009, Baraclough released their debut album 'Hello Animal' on Forris, their audio publishing cooperative. This was followed in November 2009 by their second release, the cassette-only issue, 'The Lampshade is not a Past Tense' on The Tapeworm.

In 2010, Baraclough began a series of digital releases from their archives of live recordings, were featured in photographic form at Wolfgang Tillmans summer exhibition at The Serpentine Gallery, and released the limited edition cassette, 'Vulpus Vulpus' on Beartown Records.
