about

WOO! Leading single taken from the upcoming "Comfort Songs" album from Los Angeles via Boston via New York artist Cloud!

Audio Antihero are truly delighted have Cloud in 'the family' and really excited for you to hear the forthcoming "Comfort Songs" album which'll be beautifully packaged and treasured fo' ever.

Cloud quietly made his AAH debut last month on the "REGAL VS STEAMBOAT" compilation: audioantihero.bandcamp.com/track/a-song-of-what-stays - he's good, right?!

If you feel like sharing this song with a friend, well...go right ahead.

Press:

"Astoundingly accomplished." - Pitchfork - pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/15925-mother-sea/

"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)

"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

"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

"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)

"I love this, really really like it." - Gill Mills (New Music Matters/Amazing Radio)

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

"Instantly catch as Hell and hard to describe, or let alone pin down all the places Cloud dips into, Mother Sea is buoyant, melancholic, yearning and hopeful all at the same time. It’s odd enough vocally and musically to make you take notice, but Cloud keeps building and layering, creating a gorgeous—and smart—pop swell." - Sunrise Ocean Bender
