‘Nobody In The Dust’ marks a turning point sonically for Glossy Clouds, as they deliver a more enriched and distinctive sound. The music explodes like a roaring bomb with crashing electric guitar and melodic drums, as we are taken on a riotous, ride through the desert.
The band said “It’s a track with an arid, warm, electric atmosphere, a motorized wandering in the desert brought to life in a saturated and kitsch music-video openly inspired by old Hollywood road-movies!
The concept behind the video was to stage us in the manner of those well-loved movie scenes, where we know that the reality is an image scrolling behind a car that is in the studio!”
Glossy Clouds are Jérôme Bralet (vocals and Guitar), Hugo Merle (Drums) and their three female choristers. The duo were introduced by their respective girlfriends and immediately hit it off, a shared outlook and energy for music, art, photography, and life was channelled into their songwriting and performances to create the unique collective ‘Glossy Clouds’. The result is not just a band, but a creative universe where the gentle humour and anything-goes lawlessness is utterly riveting. The inseparable songwriting duo are outsiders looking in, effectively rock kids in a dance town. It’s this that binds them.
Tracks from the ‘Glossy Clouds’ debut EP were supported online by the likes of Wonderland, Clash and The Most Radicalist to name but a few. A live showcase of all releases was performed at 229 London on Tuesday 14th September. The live show aligned the band’s unique songwriting and visuals to craft a complete artistic statement and an electric, sexy glam atmosphere. Audiences were treated to matching custom-made costumes, wild stage moves and unlimited supplies of energy.
With music that captivates the listener from the outset, alongside a compelling glorious, unadorned, unpretentious thirst for self-expression, the future looks very bright for Glossy Clouds.
