Cloud Control‘s debut album ‘Bliss Release’, was one that managed to get onto my ipod, into my CD player and just never leave either. It boasted beautifully lush harmonies and a slight hippy psychedelic vibe. It also won them a Aria in their native Australia, their version of a Mercury or Choice Music Prize.
Following the release of their debut, the band moved to UK and Dojo Rising is the first new music we’ve heard since then. It’s a little dark and mournful, features some contemporary electronic blips and with sometimes overlapping vocal lines. Although there still is a little bit of a psychedelic edge, the band have moved on from Bliss Release.
Dojo Rising is taken from ‘Dream Cave’ and will be released on Infectious Records in Ireland and the UK on September 16th.
