ALTERNATIVE Aussie rock band, Cloud Control, originally from the Blue Mountains, have been making their mark on the UK music scene over the past three years spent living, writing and playing in the UK, and culminating in the release of their second album Dream Cave in August.
With the first official single off Dream Cave ‘Dojo Rising’ currently topping ‘most played’ lists on radio and blogs the world over, there is no doubt that Cloud Control have done some serious growing over this time.
Earlier this year 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.
They’re now getting set to head off on an epic UK tour, taking in everywhere from Sheffield to Norwich. The tour includes two London dates — XOYO on 23 September, and the O2 Academy Brixton on 17 October.
