Rolling Stone AU and KEXP Celebrate Cloud Control’s “Strange New Pop”

Rolling Stone Australia has praise for Zone, the new LP from the continent’s anthemic art-rockers Cloud Control. “On the group’s third LP,” writes the rag, “they’ve discovered… a new space situated between triumph and tragedy that sees them still keeping one eye on the horizon… [the LP is] a notable distance from the humble psych-pop of their past.” Rolling Stone appreciates the grandeur of the record, cheering on the band as they quest for even greater sonic discovery. Check out the review here.

On the new release, the band has found inspiration in keyboards, samples, and drum machines. Seattle’s KEXP recently took notice, awarding Song of the Day honors to lead single “Rainbow City.” “The song sees riffs float through a gossamer miasma of synths and powerful vocal harmonies,” wrote the station in a July feature of the song.

Zone was on lots of radio Add lists last week, and Cloud Control is eyeing a NACC 200 debut this week. Get them started at your station now.
