Man Of War EP (Download)
Release Date: 14/10/2016
The Man of War EP is a significant sonic progression for the band. Opening track Gaia sets the tone for the release perfectly. Heavy, brooding bass and glitchy, synth stabs create an imposing sonic backdrop for Tom’s menacing vocal to hang on. Lead and title track Man Of War is driven by its propulsive beats and more washes of bass and eerie electronic touches. Fall Crocus finds the band in contemplative mood. A heavy, regretful air hangs over the track and brings to mind the work of international superstar and Mercury Prize winner James Blake, who the band has toured with, as well as Mount Kimbie and Ghostpoet previously. Final original cut Cosmos Pink is perhaps the EP’s most touching effort. Cloud Boat have always been a band capable of inducing sincere emotion and this EP is no different, taking the listener on a powerful, cathartic journey through life’s big issues.
