Winners of The 2010 Australian Music Prize, Air Awards for ‘Best Independent Album’ + ‘Best Breakthrough Artist’ and SMAC Awards for ‘Record Of The Year’ + ‘Best Live Music Act’ read more
Inspired by the great melody makers of our time, Cloud Control embrace excellent song craft with Neil Young-inspired vocals, inventive pop melodies and old-time girl/boy harmonies from an era when pop music was pure and, well, just made you smile. It’s the atmosphere one can only generate from growing up in the Blue Mountains – the foggy landscape of mystery and nostalgia, the smell of burning embers and camaraderie musically mixed together to invoke feelings of joy and curiosity that are entirely original.
The band released their debut album Bliss Release to much acclaim in 2010. It won well-respected Australian Music Prize, AIR Awards for Album of the Year and Best Breakthrough Artist, SMAC (Sydney Music And Culture) Awards for Best Album and Best Live Act and nominations for ARIA Awards and the J Award.
To celebrate the band’s success, a deluxe edition of Bliss Release was released on March 25 featuring a bonus disc of b-sides and remixes by Seekae, Djanimals, SPOD and Fishing.
