British duo CLOUD BOAT present new single HIDEAWAY!
Cloud Boat’s new single ‘Hideaway’ is taken from forthcoming album ‘Model Of You’, released on July the 7th through Apollo Records and R&S.
‘Hideaway’ is a stunning and uplifting track with dramatic layers of guitars and beats and sees Cloud Boat at their best on their anticipated second album.
‘Model Of You’ follows the 2013 release of their critically acclaimed debut album Book Of Hours. which was hailed as one of the best albums of the year by Clash, This Is Fake DIY and The 405.London born and bred Sam Ricketts and Tom Clarke begun as part of the generation for whom electronic production and songwriting were no longer separate worlds, like their childhood friend James Blake, apart from Sam and Tom were proud teenage metal fans. One listen to Model of You tells you that Cloud Boat are not the band they were 12 months ago. Richer, heavier, more adventurous, this is an emotional record that finds Tom and Sam untethering themselves from their past and sailing into deeper waters.
The man charged with helping Cloud Boat navigate this new course was Andy Savours, the English producer who’d worked with a number of the pair’s favourite bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Sigur Rós and The Horrors. The three recorded in four London studios, including Crouch End’s The Crypt, part of the same church complex recently acquired by Paul Epworth, and formerly owned by Dave Stewart.
