Cloud Control has announced that they will join Metronomy on a North American tour this spring, with shows kicking off on May 9 in Atlanta. The Australian group will be playing songs from their acclaimed album Dream Cave, out now on Votiv. A complete run of the band’s tour dates can be found below, which also includes a stop at Sasquatch Festival on May 24.
Originally hailing from Australia’s Blue Mountains and now residing in the UK, Cloud Control is made up of Alister Wright, Heidi Lenffer, Ulrich Lenffer and Jeremy Kelshaw.
Contrasting the home recorded stylings of BlissRelease, the band escaped to the countryside for the new record to work with producer and engineer Barny Barnicott (Spiritualized, Arctic Monkeys, Temper Trap, Franz Ferdinand.) The resulting Dream Cave sound of psychedelic guitar pop and soaring West Coast harmonies, with warm electronics, programmed loops and reverb-soaked percussion.
Dream Cave marks the evolution of Cloud Control’s elegant, psychedelic pop sound, a growth that is the result of three years spent living, writing and playing in the UK. As frontman Alister Wright explains, “we’re all feeling pretty proud of it. I think that’s all you can do, try and make something you like and put it in the world – maybe people will like it, maybe you can change a couple of perspectives.”
Cloud Control recently premiered their new video for their track “Moonrabbit,” which you can watch above.
