The second offering from Cloud Nothings’
forthcoming album Here And Nowhere Else
falls somewhere between the anger and chaos of 2012′s Attack On Memory
and the edgy optimism of the recent single, I’m Not A Part Of Me. Psychic Trauma
initially comes on with an anthemic, almost Springsteen-esque groove, before an abrupt tempo change launches them into their trademark garage territory.
Lyrically, it seems as though vocalist Dylan Baldi is still working towards overcoming the lingering aggression from their past release. But some steps are tougher than others, and his controlled yet passionate distaste for the feelings that arise eventually boil over into a noise-fest similar to the ones found on Wasted Days
. The album arrives April 1, and you can check out the new track below.
