Cloud Nothings – “Modern Act”

After two years, indie quintet Cloud Nothings have returned with a brand new track and news of the upcoming release of their new album Life Without Sound, the follow-up to 2014’s fantastic Here and Nowhere Else. “Modern Act” is definitely slower and thoughtful, centering more on Dylan Baldi’s yelping vocals rather than the rhythmic intensity of the instrumentals. Baldi has said in a statement that the new record is “like my version of new age music. It’s supposed to be inspiring.” The new track definitely has that lithe, clear sound that usually emerges from some sort of life-changing epiphany, and it will be interesting to see if the rest of the album follows suit.

Life Without Sound will be released on January 27.
