‘Bliss Release’ – CLOUD CONTROL
After months of anticipation, since their single ‘Gold Canary’ which SYN featured way back in October last year, Cloud Control finally bring us their debut album, which is a ‘Bliss Release.’
Hailing from Sydney, these pop maestros recorded ‘Bliss Release’ through 2009 and early 2010, a release which has so far delivered the heavenly singles ‘Gold Canary’ and ‘This Is What I Said’. It took just four days to lay the bed tracks for the majority of the album, then eight long months of stolen evenings crafting this ethereal sound in bedrooms and family living rooms.
‘Bliss Release’ heralds a surprising and exciting new direction for the band, making it worthy of international recognition. ‘Gold Canary’ was chosen by UK voters as Single Of The Week on BBC6’s Rebel Playlist and influential British music website Drowned In Sound awarded Gold Canary ‘Single of the week’.
The band has also evolved into a triumphant live music beast supporting high profile acts such as Supergrass and Josh Pyke, as well as numerous national tours with the likes of The John Steel Singers, Leader Cheetah and Yves Klein Blue. To top it all off, in 2009 they were invited to play the Great Escape festival in the UK, where they performed alongside Kasabian, The XX, The Temper Trap, Peter, Bjorn & John and many more.
The band will be touring throughout May and June with fellow psych pop compatriots Richard In Your Mind joining in on all dates.
Bliss Release is a superb recording, which we believe deserves to be our Hoist feature of the week.
