Never miss another 'Cloud Control' show
Cloud Control today announce a UK and European tour to mark the forthcoming release of their second album Dream Cave, due out in the UK on 16th September.
Originally hailing from Australia's Blue Mountains, but now residing in the UK, Cloud Control - Alister Wright, Heidi Lenffer, Ulrich Lenffer and Jeremy Kelshaw - are applying last minute magic to the follow up to 2011's 'Bliss Release'.
Whereas their debut was ostensibly a home recording (laid to tape in Jeremy's parent's living room), for 'Dream Cave' Cloud Control decamped to the Kent countryside with producer and mix engineer Barny Barnicott to capture something utterly unique – an addictive swirl that uniquely blurs together the psychedelic guitar pop and soaring West Coast harmonies of their debut with warm electronics, programmed loops and reverb-soaked percussion.
From the Blue Mountains in Australia, this quartet embrace the alt-folk tradition, with Neil Young-inspired vocals and inventive pop melodies. The band salutes the music of yesteryear with boy/girl harmonies, falling somewhere between Fleetwood Mac, The Shins and Fleet Foxes. In 2007 they recorded their debut EP live to analogue tape, inside a stone house in the Blue Mountains. Their debut album, 'Bliss Release' was released in the UK in May 2011 to critical acclaim, and won the Australian Music Prize, the antipodean equivalent of the Mercury Prize. The band have spent countless hours in the backs of vans and tour buses notching up over four hundred gigs across the globe including support slots with Vampire Weekend, Weezer and Arcade Fire.
