It’s always a pleasure when a new artist or label presents a piece of music that makes you stop and pause for a moment so you can give it your full listening attention.
Little is known about Head Of Clouds except it’s a Spanish artist who clearly makes exceptional music. From the quality of the first release titled “Almond Eyes” it wouldn’t at all be a surprise if this is a new project from someone already established under another name, as its audio quality far surpasses your average debut.
Intensely uplifting and magically charming, it’s got a compelling atmosphere that can only be described as triumphant. The audio captures that same feeling you might get from the self-satisfaction of finishing a marathon when your body is full of endorphins.
A majestic piano riff opens the show, and it’s soon joined by a sombre bassline that’s heartfelt emotion contrasts with the uplifting melody of the synth line.
Stripped back and from a distance quite simplistic, it’s the subtle precision of the sound manipulation that keeps you hooked. Slowly building suspense it’s got a thought-provoking mood that’s both warm and soothing.
Probably closer to the ambient electronica category than house or techno, but it’s still got elements that could work on a dance floor, and it would make a great intro or outro for any DJ set.
We are definitely excited to hear more from this project, as rarely does something show so much promise straight out the gate.
