Clogs are primarily an instrument group but far from a side project. With members from The National, Clogs are no strangers or newcomers to the music world. With three full length albums behind them, the band has a unique sound that range from melodic, to experimental. Their sound is created with the help of violins, ukuleles, bassoons, and other instruments not many people would think of using in their band. Formed in the late 1990's, the band continues to develop their sound and change with every record.
