CLOUD BOAT play the Waiting Room on 5th of March
Occupying the nocturnal space between the poignant maximalism of Tim Buckley and the codeine beats of Mount Kimbie, Cloud Boat – aka British duo Sam Ricketts and Tom Clarke – deliver a gorgeously original and soulful new slant to electronica.
The first time we heard of Cloud Boat, of course, was with their R&S single ‘Lions On The Beach’, an iridescent slice of folk-spliced electronica, shimmering and swooning in all the right places. The band were then personally selected to tour support both Mount Kimbie and James Blake, a stint which honed an already promising live show. Making the short hop over from R&S to the reactivated sister label Apollo seems a natural progression, as their music continues the lineage of classic experimental records from the likes of Aphex Twin, Mark Van Hoen and Biosphere.
