American indie-rock band Cloud Nothings are back with their brand new album, The Shadow I Remember.
Fusing together the bands signature alt-rock sounds with front man Dylan Baldi’s shining vocals bringing to life his evoactive lyricism, The Shadow I Remember sees Baldi exploring his place in the world as both human and band a decade into his career. The four-piece reunited Steve Albini and his Electrical Audio studios in Chicago, where the band worked on their acclaimed 2012 album Attack on Memory.
Speaking of their latest single, frontman Dylan Baldi shares: “Lyrically this song is based on a movie called Oslo, August 31st that I watched in the weeks leading up to recording the album. It's a bleak story about a recovering drug addict who has a difficult time getting his life back together after rehab. It was a really moving movie that I related to on a few levels, so I ended up making this song about it.”
Last month, Cloud Nothings re-released their debut album, Turning On. Recorded by Baldi on a computer in his parents' basement, the record is an essential album to fully understand the world of Cloud Nothings. Including live staples like Hey Cool Kid and Can't Stay Awake, the album is available on vinyl with its original track list, while the digital 10th anniversary deluxe edition includes all 13 tracks found in Carpark's first edition of the album, plus four new bonus live tracks.
To celebrate the release of The Shadow I Remember, the four-piece will be hosting a livestream concert this Sunday, live from The Grog Shop in Cleveland. Taking place at 8am AEDT, tickets are available here.
