Ever wondered what happened to indie-folk group Community Musk? Well who cares…
Somewhat reminiscent of the late 2000’s CM, the Clouded Alps have done their very best to fill the void that CM left in our collective indie-bedroom-folk hearts. The Clouded Alps have delivered us a telegram:
“dearest all, would you be so kind to affix your aural senses onto our debut jaunt . stop . I trust you will find it full of whimsy - and one distorted banjo solo. stop. sincerely, the clouded alps. stop.”
Whilst it is evident from the recording that this is a self-recorded affair, it doesn’t take away from the solid song craft that the band clearly possess. Despite the use of numerous instruments, more instruments than members, the band manages to remain entirely in synch with each other.
To call this group indie-folk would be every bit a disservice. They could also fit in the plain folk category.
One thing is for certain, The Clouded Alps are sure to continue their ascent and reach the atmospheric heights they so richly deserve.
