PREMIERE: Brisbane's Cloud Tangle Shares Haunting New Single 'Follow You'
Brisbane multi-instrumentalist Amber Ramsay aka Cloud Tangle creates stunning lo-fi dream pop, and we’re very pleased to be premiering her latest single.
'Follow You' is the follow up single to last years 'Pocket' EP, which saw four blissful tracks released on cassette via Valley Heat Records. With such a beautifully warm vocal tone, there's very little need to overcomplicate things. Just add some glittering guitar and subtle percussion, and you've got the perfect dynamic - enough to send you drifting into dimensions unknown.
Today we get first dibs on both the song and the video, all directed by Ramsay herself. It’s this strong DIY approach that gives life to such a beautiful project aesthetic. The consistent black and white theme evokes a dark but gentle atmosphere, while her lyrical vulnerability provides both depth and intrigue.
Cloud Tangle shared some thoughts on the recording process: “I wrote the song in the mix of a few different emotions. It’s sort of based around feelings of distance in a relationship and the eb and flow of closing the distance, which can sometimes be hard. At the time when I recorded it I was focusing in a lot more on instruments that I can’t play too well like drums and bass and I really pushed for a fuller sounding track. It’s still really lo-fi but I put more time into the production and recording process than I usually would."
If you're a fan of mysterious bedroom pop with meaning, then Cloud Tangle is definitely for you.
She plays Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on April 19. Fingers crossed for a Sydney visit soon, a performance we'd love to experience live. Until then, you can indulge in the beauty of it all below.
