Clouds Readies New EP for Soma
- Words: Derek Opperman
Hard-hitting Scottish techno duo Clouds (whose press photos seem to always feature only one member) will return to the Soma label with a follow-up EP to last year’s Complete Control, its debut on the respected Glaswegian imprint. Tilted Boys on E. Terriers, the forthcoming effort appears to pick up where the duo last left off, with three booming and ravey cuts that its press release describes as evoking "images of firefights above dystopian cities." That idea is fully fleshed out from the start, beginning with the crunchy broken-beat loops of opener "Teenage Boy," while the EP's other cuts, "Elevator Girl" and "Genista Cave 4," approach a similarly bombastic level of sci-fi dancefloor gloom. Clouds' second record for Soma will see a release on May 26. In the meantime, its artwork and tracklist are included below.
