Sophomore album 'Swells' out now.
Swells is a dark and brooding glimpse into the new chapter of Brisbane project Cloud Tangle. Expansive textures of synthesizers and vocals build a sense of lament and apprehension leading you into a dreamlike state of ambiguity.
"Settle yourself on your couch or in that warm bath, close your eyes, slow your breathing, and transcend with the hauntingly delicate and refined vocals of Cloud Tangle to regions beyond and enter the depths and layers of your soul perhaps never knew you had."
Swells is a collection of songs written over the summer of 2020 in Ramsay's bedroom. The concept of the album was focused heavily on the instrumentation, which was limited to a Juno synthesizer, vocals & Logic Pro. Testing the limits yet again of the 'DIY Artist', the outcome sways the usual cinematic and live instrumentation towards a more artificial yet still expansive sound. The album brings a sense of angst and energy that brews under the surface.
