Song of the Week – Modern Act, Cloud Nothings

IGNORED OBSCURED RESTORED

At the beginning of this year the Cleveland based band Cloud Nothings released their fourth full album, Life Without Sound.

The band was originally a virtual group named by founder Dylan Baldi when he was releasing music he wrote and recorded using Garage Band during college back in ’09. A New York promoter came across the music and wanted to book the band for a show. Baldi sprang into action to form a real Cloud Nothings band in order to accept the gig.

“Modern Act,” today’s SotW, was the first single released from Life Without Sound.

“Modern Act” is power pop, but with a little dirt under the fingernails. It has both polished hooks and snarly guitar riffs.

The band is currently on tour – Canada, the Midwest, South, then onto Europe.

Enjoy… until next week.

  1. It was me. I think we have different definitions of “snarl.” Kinda reminds me of The db’s. They call this “power pop” too. I hear the pop, a bit skewed, but the power is M.I.A.
