After months of anticipation, Cloud Control’s debut album is sure to be a Bliss Release.
‘Bliss Release’ was recorded through 2009 and early 2010 and has so far offered two sublime 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’.
There was no love lost at home either, with local connoisseurs Mess and Noise proclaiming that “Gold Canary quickly assumes its place as one of the best Australian singles of the year”.
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.
