Cloud Nothings by Daniel Topete

LISTEN: “So Right So Clean” 
PRE-ORDER: Last Building Burning
As Cloud Nothings gears up to release their new album, the Cleveland four-piece is sharing a new song. “So Right So Clean” follows “Leave Him Now” and “The Echo Of The World” as the latest offering from their upcoming album Last Building Burning, set to arrive October 19th via Carpark Records. The new track demonstrates the sonic range of this new record, as the slow-burning track erupts into a feverish pitch led by Dylan’s vocals. In support of the new album, Cloud Nothings will be embarking on a fall tour, which spans North America with 35 dates beginning on October 22nd. Tickets are available now via
Last Burning Building arrives as a culmination of the development of Dylan Baldi’s ever-changing sound, following up 2017’s Life Without Sound with a new record that sees the band continue to outdo themselves and solidify themselves as a stalwart in modern rock music. The new album is an extension of the band’s live performances, capturing the frenetic energy that’s characteristic of their shows and infusing the jagged unpredictability of guitars that Baldi feels is missing in modern rock today.
“I’m obsessed with the idea of energy at the moment,” Baldi says about the making of Last Building Burning. “That’s how I thought of this record: seven short, and one long, bursts of intense, controlled chaos. I wanted to make that come across in a way that can actually be felt.”

More about Cloud Nothings:
For a band that sticks to its impulses instead of trends, Cloud Nothings accumulates critical praise and loyal fans with the type of ease modern rock bands can only dream of. That’s because the Cleveland four-piece is the byproduct of Dylan Baldi, a frontman whose melodic intuition and musical fervor are as innate as they are impressive. Baldi’s early indie rock songs welcome pop warmly without sounding trite. His later alt-rock hooks are too busy criss-crossing guitar lines to overthink things. The urgency he writes with comes across in the vividness of his guitar. Since expanding his solo project into a proper band, Baldi has positioned Cloud Nothings as the torchbearer of the frenetic, visceral, and thundering rock of bands like The Wipers and Drive Like Jehu. It’s all alternating resolves and anticipated breakdowns. And live, it’s near impossible to dispute talent that palpable.
Looking back, it makes sense how Cloud Nothings got here. At the age of 18, Baldi gained attention after a string of lo-fi songs he recorded in the comfort of his basement began circulating online. It landed him a spot on a buzzed-about show in Brooklyn where, in turn, he caught the eyes of Carpark. His music began its upward ascent immediately. In 2010, Carpark released Turning On, a retrospective combo of the band’s debut EP and various 7″ singles. Cloud Nothings unveiled their self-titled LP the following year, a record that showcased how crisp Baldi’s hooks sound when given proper studio time. But what followed in 2012, their breakthrough LP Attack on Memory, paved a new path for the band. The album saw Baldi throw himself into his guitar while collaborating with the rest of his touring band-drummer Jayson Gerycz, bassist TJ Duke, and guitarist Joe Boyer-to create an aggressive, unrelenting, and throat-scratching album that captured not just their sound, but their collective raw energy. Cloud Nothings fleshed out that sound further on 2014’s Here and Nowhere Else, this time as a trio after Boyer’s departure. Even when Baldi, in a decision to feed his quiet fondness for pop, used 2017’s Life Without Sound to showcase his melodic inclinations, he showed a continued growth in his songwriting skills.
Cloud Nothings folds all of that forward momentum into their newest record, Last Building Burning. Just over half an hour in length, the album is a singular listen designed to mirror the experience of their live shows. Gerycz and Duke propel the rhythm section with their fastest speed to date. Baldi and guitarist Chris Brown reshape converging guitar parts into double-edged swords, reaching beyond power chords for instantly pleasing riffs that are urgent in delivery. Though the record touches on various sounds of the band’s past-“Another Way Of Life” digs its toes into the harmonies of Life Without Sound and “On An Edge” recalls the blistering peaks of Here and Nowhere Else-it showcases how untouchable the band has become. Cloud Nothings is a permanent staple of what rock music should sound like: gritty, caustic, and tireless. In that, almost a decade into their career, Cloud Nothings has become a reference point for budding rock acts while perpetually looking to outdo themselves as they go.
