Bliss Release is the debut album from Australian Indie outfit Cloud Control. They hail from the Blue Mountains, just outside of Sydney. They sew a wide palette of influences together to create a truly original tapestry of aural delight. Dreamy Psych Pop, Country, Folk and Soul are only scraping the surface to describe the sound of this truly unique band. It has already spawned the incredibly successful single “Gold Canary,” being hailed as “one of the best Australian singles of the year” by tastemakers Mess & Noise. In 2011 the album won the Australian Music Prize (the Australian equivalent to UK’s Mercury Prize) which led them to playing with bands like The Weekend, Arcade Fire, & The Drums.
“There’s an appealing open-heartedness about the debut from Australian psychedelic poppers Cloud Control, a sense of wide-eyed, slightly fried wonder. ”
– The Guardian
“Essentially, this is some of the most consistent songwriting to come from Australia since the loss of The Go-Betweens, and some of the most arcane performing available anywhere outside of Arcade Fire.” “”
