Album Review: Cloud Nothings


Cloud Nothings
Cloud Nothings
Label: Rogue/Inertia
Release Date: February 4

The one-man band behind Cloud Nothings, Dylan Baldi, is only 19. The amazing thing is that he is about to release his highly anticipated self-titled debut. Highly. Anticipated. Cloud Nothings subtly taps and awakens your punk alter ego that you thought you laid to rest. Remember the late 90’s where you picked up your first guitar to play power chords? You picked up a few more riffs, scales and chords, and eventually graduated from guitar 101, leaving behind your punk roots. Cloud Nothings however carefully balances these punk riffs with upbeat pop melodies, blanketed with lo-fi fuzz. Consider a cross between early Pixies, Wavves and Pains of Being Pure at Heart – that is the sound of Cloud Nothings. A little twee, a little punk, heaps of variety and hella infectious. Between you and me, Cloud Nothings’ self-titled debut is something secretly awesome.
