Songs for Children present CLOUD NOTHINGS

Description

The 25-year-old still writes songs to emulate this feeling of a life full of doubt, dedicated for people that often employ apathetic “I’m fine”s to just find an escape. Cloud Nothings, however, have evolved beyond the status of a post-high school band and while still wrought in emotion, their fourth album represents optimism, vibrancy and combative noise in a life drained of sound.

Cloud Nothings’ best work to date.

Baldi has bulked up the band’s lo-fi production values for a more muscular sound while retaining the youthful energy of his songwriting (Enter Entirely and Internal World bounce along with a Weezer-ish buoyancy). The chunky melodies that stomp over tracks such as Things Are Right With You demand the volume cranked up, not down, and – in the best possible sense –

Cloud Nothings founded in Cleveland, the solo bedroom project of Dylan Baldi, an unassuming, then 18-year-old student with a remarkable ear for melody. Prolific from the start, Baldi’s early work was rough but immediate: crudely recorded, spring-loaded spasms of Buzzcocks-informed pop that quickly found an online following among the lo-fi-inclined and classic track 'Hey Cool Kid'.

Cloud Nothings made their proper Carpark Records debut with a thrilling self-titled LP that found Baldi in a studio for the first time, shedding the many layers of hiss and distortion that had once obscured (or enhanced) his every hook. What followed was an unexpected breakthrough, 2012’s Attack on Memory, an album that very loudly (with the help of legendary producer Steve Albini) announced the arrival of Cloud Nothings as the sound of more than just Baldi: Caustic and cathartic, it marked the first time Baldi wrote with and for his longtime touring band. While its rightly acclaimed and hastily recorded follow-up, 2014’s Here and Nowhere Else refined and expanded upon the volcanic interplay that galvanized its predecessor, it also found Baldi realizing his potential as a singer and the leader of an undeniably great rock band.

Life Without Sound, was released in January this year to huge critical acclaim. Baldi's most polished and outwardly reflective set of songs to date. Smart, nuanced, and immensely listenable, this is guitar-driven pop as it should be—conceived by a songwriter who continues to sound like one of the finest of his generation.

Don’t miss this chance to witness one of the finest US indie bands crank up the volume and brig the house down for their first headline show in Singapore!
