CLOUD CONTROL release first DREAM CAVE taster, ‘DOJO RISING’!
After three years spent living, writing and playing in the UK, Cloud Control is back with a brand new single DOJO RISING, and my-oh-my, how they have grown.
With a worldwide online premiere running exclusively on Pitchfork right now (click here to listen), DOJO RISING marks a brave new direction for the Sydney via Blue Mountains quartet, while maintaining that Cloud Control charm that won them so much acclaim on their debut Bliss Release.
Having already received spins on airwaves around the world, with Australian youth station triple j instantly adding it to rotation and influential DJ Zane Lowe (BBC1) giving the track its UK premiere last night, DOJO RISING is the first offering off the band’s highly anticipated sophomore album Dream Cave, out 9th of August.
The band shacked up in the picturesque English countryside of Kent with producer Barny Barnicott (The Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Spiritualized) to put down the 11 tracks that make up Dream Cave, a record that promises to cherish their elegant psychedelic pop, whilst exploring a treasure trove of new influences and a progressive direction.
The band recently treated audiences to a healthy slice of new material at their VIVID Festival performance, for which The Guardian gave them a solid four-stars (read the full review here).
With DOJO RISING finally out into the stratosphere, it’s a very exciting time in camp Cloud Control. In front man, Alister Wright’s words about Dream Cave, “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.”.
The band will return to Australia in July for a performance at this year’s Splendour in the Grass.
