Cloud Boat - Wanderlust

Not so much dreampop as drifting slowly into nightmarish coves, the duo's first proper single in a while, out March 5th, is all about the atmosphere, delicate guitar licks leaving great big holes for ambient waves to cascade into. The plangent vocal and minimal, looped and whirring electronics behind recall James Blake with/or a decaying Ghosting Season but it holds its own iridescent glow amid the enveloping tension. There's a handful of dates around the single - March 5th London Waiting Room, 6th Birmingham Bulls Head, 7th Manchester Trof, 9th Bristol Start The Bus.
