The Clouds - Check Us Out

The Clouds - Check Us Out
1990 heralded a new era in Australian music with the emergence of a cohort of female-fronted, female-driven bands challenging the previous dominance of male-centric rock music.

Sydney’s Clouds were at the forefront of the advancing movement, combining assured musicianship with well-crafted songs and the thrilling, distinctive harmonies of founding members Jodi Phillis and Trish Young.

While the Clouds songs always featured glorious melodies, on examination the lyrics were often shot through with streaks of darkness and the instrumental backing proved there was more to the music than its immediate prettiness. Never shy of experimentation, the band defied classification and frequently explored different time signatures and feels, creating long form atmospheric soundscapes and raucous three minute bursts of sonic energy as easily as they delivered sparkling pop gems.

The Clouds first incarnation ended in 1997, but they re-emerged in the early 2010s to the delight of fans who’d sorely missed them, alongside a new generation of listeners. The most enduring line-up, consisting of Jodi and Trish with Dave Easton on guitar and Raphael Whittingham on drums, will be showcasing their newest release, Check Us Out, at shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in June 2019.

About this track...

The Clouds strike again with their latest release, Check Us Out. Underpinned by Raph Whittingham’s rock-solid beat, and layered with driving power chords, it’s an emphatic attention-grabber. Jodi Phillis and Trish Young weave their symbiotic voices around lyrics celebrating self-belief, determination and perseverance. Dave Easton’s outro shredding puts the final seal on what will surely be an instant classic.
