The Cloud Room - Blackout!

Tightly opening like the lovechild of ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and the great-grandson of Scott Joplin, ‘Blackout!’ is attired in handclaps, semi-deadpan and choruses infested with pulsating drums. And weirdly, this track first surfaced almost two years ago – with all hope, more people will stand up and take note this time around. The Cloud Room the consistency of 80s stimuli that so many strive for and fail to achieve without resorting to deference. But more than that, this is accessible without being dumbed down – hooky, memorable AND clever.
