Cloud Control gigs

After sensational reactions to debut single “Gold Canary” released earlier this year, Australia’s Cloud Control are returning to the UK for a brief spell of shows in July having signed to bespoke independent label Infectious Music.

Described by Record Collector as “…somewhere between Animal Collective’s Beach Boys spin and the sophisticated pop shenanigans of The Shins” and having a victorious nomination on BBC 6 Music’s Rebel Playlist, Cloud Control play London’s The Luminare and Brighton’s Freebutt before debuting at Secret Garden Party. This string of intimate gigs pre-empts the bands first single release on Infectious Music this autumn with the bands stunning debut album ‘Bliss Release’ due in early 2011.

Hailing from the picturesque and rugged terrains of Australia’s Blue Mountains, the ethereal melodies and tribal rhythms of the enigmatic quartet drift wonderfully between the psyche-flourishes of Jefferson Airplane and the dreamy vastness of The Go-Betweens.

Since their UK debut at The Great Escape Festival in 2009, Cloud Control have evolved into a thrilling live act, headlining their first sell-out tour of Australia earlier this year after supporting Vampire Weekend on their Australasian tour by special request. Nurtured from the same vein of eccentricity that nourished David Byrne & Nick Cave and loaded with a stellar collection of quirky layered harmonic pop, Cloud Control is sure to excite this summer.

Cloud Control are Alister Wright (guitar/lead vocals), Jeremy Kelshaw (bass) and siblings Heidi Lenffer (keyboards/vocals) and Ulrich Lenffer (drums).
