Song of the Week – Modern Act, Cloud Nothings


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.
