Cape May, N.J., duo Clavicles make expansive indie folk. Steeped in the trappings of orchestral chamber pop, such as heavy use of cello and other strings, the musicians’ tunes sound as if they’ve been swept in by a gentle tide — which is appropriate, given their seaside home base. Beautifully appointed with a strong sense of composition, the band’s music swirls and cascades, both sonically and conceptually. The tunes glimmer on the surface and roil with strong emotions just below, creating an ethereal ebb and flow. Clavicles perform on Tuesday, January 14, at Radio Bean in Burlington.
