Cloud Control came together during the warmest winter on record. They were four folk from the Blue Mountains; school friends, brother and sister. Inspired by the great melody makers of our time, Cloud Control embrace the alt-folk tradition, with Neil Young-inspired vocals and inventive pop melodies. The band salutes the music of yesteryear with boy/girl harmonies reminiscent of The Lucksmiths and Fleetwood Mac. Their first demo received high rotation on FBi radio and saw them emerge as regulars on the Sydney gig circuit in the wake of winning the 2006 Sydney University band competition. In the summer of 2007 Cloud Control recorded their debut EP live to analogue tape, inside a stone house in the Blue Mountains. Produced in collaboration with Jon Hunter (Belles Will Ring/The Holy Soul/The Laurels) and mastered by Don Bartley at Benchmark Studios, the EP showcases a depth of songwriting that is characterised by a playful, yet intelligent originality. This record will be due for national release when the first buds of spring emerge.
