Cloud’s “Comfort Songs” album out now!

I’m just christening this partially unfinished new website with the big ol’ news that we’ve released a new record!

Also available from: iTunes / Amazon / Fairsharemusic / Rough Trade / 7digital

Free Single:

“Astoundingly accomplished.”Pitchfork 

“Cloud know their way around a pop song, and for all of the album’s off-beat charms, and occasionally hard-to-grasp content, it’s a true pop heart which can be found at the centre of every song that helps to make this such a rewarding listen – 8/10.” –Drowned In Sound 

“A great record.” – Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music) 

“Comfort Songs holds a strong claim as one of best albums under the ill-defined umbrella of ‘indie-rock’ that has been released in the last decade or so – 10/10.”Contact Music 

“Emerging 21 year old singer/producer Cloud forges a rich, heartening sound around a passionate vocal, dressing his narratives in shimmering instrumentation, like Conor Oberst in the throes of an obsession with psychedelia.” – Rough Trade 

“Immediately one of my favourite albums of the year.” - Sonic Reverie 

“A very impressive debut.” – 7BitArcade

“In Comfort Songs I find a time for reflection, a confirmation of life and its wonder, and a sense of belonging – to whom, I’m not certain, but to someone. And I know, years down the road, this will remain a landmark album for me, with just the same resonant power. Hopefully, dear reader, you’ll be moved, too.” – GoldFlakePaint 

“I love this…” – Simon Raymonde (Amazing Radio/Bella Union) 

“Properly great…unsteady melodies and a decent amount of self-doubt before heading deep into a freak-folk coda.” –Sweeping The Nation

A new website/thing


Here’s the old/current site, I’ll miss it:

It feels like a bit of a cop-out to join everybody in this BIG WHITE WORDPRESS MUSIC WEBSITE world…but my god, it feels nice to have a website that I have some element of control over, one where I can embed things and use pictures and widgets without ruining my entire life forever. So, while it wasn’t an easy decision…this is our vaguely new website. I’m very thankful for all the unlimited help  I was given (i.e somebody anonymously doing most of it for me).

Getting there… maybe
