Majical Cloudz – What That Was – Listen
Majical Cloudz is music and performance. Rooted in solo material recorded by Devon Welsh between rural Ontario and Montreal, he joined with Matthew Otto in February 2012 to bring the project to the stage.
Following the recent announcement of his new EP ‘Turns Turns Turns’ with the majestic title track, next up is ‘What That Was‘, showcasing Welsh’s commanding baritone and gift for melodic storytelling, set to the backdrop of piping organs and gospel-tinged harmonies.
Majical Cloudz music is minimal yet deeply expressive – a powerful baritone that sits on top of washes of white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds, traversing a hinterland between sample based electronic pop and highway-lit, Americana singer-songwriter tradition. The songs are intensely lyrical, oriented around themes of death, patience, family, and desire. Their live show celebrates the joy in sadness and the value of a shared musical experience.
Majical Cloudz release the 12” EP on Merok (Crystal Castles, Titus Andronicus, Deptford Goth) and Arbutus (Grimes, TOPS, Doldrums) December 3rd, with their debut album to follow on Arbutus next year.
