Midwestern trio Cloakroom formed in 2012, coining the term "stoner emo" to describe their lurching, guitar-heavy sound, which borrowed equally from hardcore's brawniness, the dreamy soundwebs of shoegaze, and sad-hearted '90s indie rock bands like Hum and Red House Painters. Coming together in Michigan City, Indiana, the band consisted of guitarist/vocalist Doyle Martin, who had formerly fronted pop-punk act the Grown-Ups, as well as drummer Brian Busch and bassist Bobby Markos. Debut album Infinity arrived in 2013 and was followed the next year by the more developed double album Further Out. ~ Fred Thomas
