Majical Cloudz, a partnership between Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto, have announced a new album and single for this Summer.
Welsh is following up his 2012 release of II, with the release of Impersonator. As the press release describes the album,
Impersonator brings Welsh’s songs into even sharper focus; its expressive power and swagger belie the extremely minimal music. These are intensely lyrical songs about death, patience, family, friendship, and desire, with Welsh’s rich vocals atop quiet looped waves of white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds.
The album will be released via Matador on May 21.
02. This Is Magic
03. Childhood’s End
04. I Do Sing For You
06. Turns Turns Turns
07. Silver Rings
09. Bugs Don’t Buzz
The first single off the album will be “Childhood’s End” – which deals with a friendship growing up and apart and ultimately with processing a person’s death. Listen to the single here:
In conjunction with the album release, Majical Cloudz will be touring with Youth Lagoon this Spring. The tour kicks off April 24th in Austin.
