ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following his tour of duty with the post-rock outfit Stop, Thief!, Todd Baran returned to writing and recording independently under the new moniker When Clouds Attack. The songs on his debut EP are primarily instrumental and defined by driving rhythms, interlocking guitar lines, and electro-organic sound layers. Those that resonate with the ambient textures of Sigur Ros or thunderous guitar swells of Explosions in the Sky will surely appreciate the soft subtleties that define this first release.

"The only shortcoming of this EP is its brevity." - The Silent Ballet

The EP features original artwork by Joe Moccia and is available in a limited pressing.

Brevi cammei sonori
L’anno scorso abbiamo avuto modo di apprezzare il cocktail musicale distribuito in parti eguali tra rock ed elettronica degli Stop,Thief!. A distanza di pochi mesi uno dei suoi membri, Todd Baran, ha deciso di imbarcarsi in un progetto musicale parallelo battezzato When Clouds Attack, seguendo la traiettoria già tracciata in passato.

La commistione di silicio e rock rimane una delle caratteristiche principali delle tre tracce presenti, pur tuttavia scegliendo questa volta un approccio più melodico senza sacrificare la stratificazione del suono. Le geometrie sonore si affidano alle continue sovrapposizioni tra sintetizzatore e chitarra elettrica, tastiere e batteria, muovendosi su un equilibrio non sempre stabile: in “The meadows” è l’anima elettronica a prendere il sopravvento, mentre la conclusiva “Ebb and flow” mostra una facciata iniziale classica che sembra indirizzarsi verso una conclusione epica prima di sorprendere tutti e svanire dolcemente in una soffice coda pianistica.

Poco più di dieci minuti di musica strumentale da apprezzare nelle sue sottili sfumature. Peccato per la brevità dell’offerta, antipasto, speriamo, di una corposa portata futura.
