Cloud Nothings’ “Life Without Sound” out today!

January 27, 2017 10:17 am

Cloud Nothings’ new record Life Without Sound is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via Spotify and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive Cloud Nothings limited edition posters and branded earplugs with the purchase of Life Without Sound,
while supplies last.

Life Without Sound is Dylan Baldi’s most polished and considered work to date, an album that speaks to his evolving gift with melody while also betraying the sort of perspective that time provides. You can hear it in the aerodynamic guitar pop of “Modern Act,” and feel it in the devastating wisdom of “Internal World,” a lullaby-like howler that dwells on “the fact that being yourself can be uncomfortable and even potentially dangerous at times.”

“Generally, it seems like my work has been about finding my place in the world,” Baldi says. “But there was a point in which I realized that you can be missing something important in your life, a part you didn’t realize you were missing until it’s there—hence the title. This record is like my version of new age music,” he adds. “It’s
supposed to be inspiring.”

The band is heading out on a worldwide tour in support of the album. Catch them in a city near you!

cloud nothings'”life without sound” streaming now!

January 23, 2017 11:05 am

Excited for the new Cloud Nothings album? Stream Life Without Sound a few days early via Hype Machine.

“Dylan Baldi started writing honest and cathartic indie rock songs as Cloud Nothings in 2008. Since then his recording project has evolved from a basement in Cleveland into an internationally popular and critically-acclaimed band. On Baldi’s fifth album, Life Without Sound, the songwriting is more reflective—meant to inspire, he explains—and collaborative, having been workshopped with bandmates for more than a year before reaching producer John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie). The nuanced and polished collection adds ‘further evidence of the brains behind Cloud Nothings’ brash exterior,’ says DIY.”

The album is officially out this Friday. Snag a pre-order today via the Carpark shop (US), Wichita Recordings (UK), or on iTunes.

The band’s worldwide tour kicks off this week!
