Cloud Nothings

Cloud Nothings - Psychic Trauma
Cloud Nothings - Giving Into Seeing

The follow-up to Attack On Memory sets a pace that I imagine must parallel the Cloud Nothings ever-evolving songwriting process. It’s a highly caffeinated jaunt that notches up the ferocity, bit by bit, throughout its eight tracks, building towards a proverbial breaking-point that never appears. So kudos to frontman Dylan Baldi for holding it all together with such ease, ‘cause while it sometimes seems that Here And Nowhere Else might come close to falling apart and crashing down into pieces, it never does, and continues speeding along, furthered by its own momentum and a breakneckedness intensity that will leave you gasping for breath if you can’t keep up.

* For the locals: Cloud Nothings will be performing on Tuesday, April 22nd at Crowbar in Ybor City
