Life Without Sound Is Out January 27th Via Wichita Recordings.

When you are known for rough, lo-fi recordings, it is always a bit of a risk to polish things up. Integrity, rightly or wrongly, is associated with lo-fi and the diehards tend to cry “sellout!” when bands veer away from the ethos. Personally, I reckon that’s a load of hogwash. Presumably, Dylan Baldi of Cloud Nothings is in complete agreement. His latest track ‘Modern Act’, taken from upcoming fifth album Life Without Sound, is a crisp, brisk piece of melodic rock that sees the 25 year old explore a smoother and glossier aesthetic. Drawing on some archetypes of pop punk, but enclosed in a more subtle package, the track is a boisterous, slightly melancholic track that culminates in shouts of, “I want a life / That’s all I need lately / I am alive / But all alone.”

“Generally, it seems like my work has been about finding my place in the world,” Baldi says of the new record. “But there was a point in which I realised that you can be missing something important in your life, a part you didn’t realise you were missing until it’s there – hence the title. This record is like my version of new age music,”he adds. “It’s supposed to be inspiring.”
