Jamie (Audio Antihero) Second single from Cloud's "Comfort Songs" album, released largely because Tyler wanted to do more cover art and I'm a maniacal success addict. Also wanted more people to hear "Cherry Dip" (and hear it they did, thanks BBC/KCRW and Amazing Radio!) and to have something to help me promote the "Comfort Songs" re-issue on cassette. Buy one - audioantihero.bandcamp.com/album/comfort-songs Favorite track: Cherry Dip.

Shawn Grunberger Pop harmonies with wonderful depth, this double-single gets weird at just the right moment. Thanks Ben! Favorite track: Cars & It's Autumn.

Simon Daley A fantastic precursor to "Comfort Songs", the kind of music the world needs more of, unassuming, carefree and mightily fucking good! Favorite track: Cherry Dip.

about

Colossal cash-in single from Audio Antihero and Cloud, I wanted to get rich/famous and he wanted to design some more cover art. Who had the nobler intentions? You decide.

You can get the single for £1 or for £6 (inc. UK postage) you can get the single and a limited edition cassette version of the "Comfort Songs" album (with download). I've wanted to release a tape for ages, so I'm delighted.

You can stream Comfort Songs here: audioantihero.bandcamp.com/album/comfort-songs

Press:
"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

"Great!" - Eric Lawrence (KCRW)

"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 & The Guardian

"Excellent." - Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

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

"I love this..." - Simon Raymonde (Amazing Radio/Bella Union)

"Mainman Tyler Taormina veers through emotions and narratives over the convention-blurring full-length, crooning of love and life and fear and anger over a stunning backdrop of fuzzy guitars, shuffling rhythms and clarion brass. It's a record sodden with heavyweight feeling that gets you right inside the inner machinations of a troubled soul; it's simultaneously heartbreaking and fascinating." - Bearded Magazine

"A very strong debut." - 7BitArcade

"What starts out promising to be a short and sweet alt-rock number, expands out into a captivating instrumental which ebbs and flows...be sure to check out the record - 8/10." - Shout 4 Music

"A bewildering treat - 8.5/10." - Crackle Feedback

"Deserves to be a huge indie hit." - Yankie Music

"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
