“When Reapers Attack” by Cloud is the first single and the second chapter of “The Fourth Planet” their upcoming debut concept album.
An amalgamation of frontman Tom Collins and Dan Norman's (Bassist) admiration for psych-rock concept albums, “When Reapers Attack” mixes hyperactive vivid daydreams experienced throughout the last year along with a unique theatrical take on psychedelic rock.
“When Reapers Attack” was mixed and recorded earlier in the year at band member Charlie Atkinson’s studio. The track sees Atkinson’s experimental nature and vivid ideas transformed into this grand track and colossal ode.
Cloud’s upcoming debut album “The Fourth Planet” follows the story of a space explorer with a mission to reach Mars however doomed to find the unexpected horrors of a dystopian planet. “When Reapers Attack” transports listeners sonically to the story's protagonist’s first encounter with The Reapers - the merciless Mars-dwelling creatures.
Brighton based psychedelic rock quintet , Cloud take inspiration from the Australian dominated scene and acts such as Pink Floyd, King Gizard & the Lizard Wizard & Psychedelic Porn Crumpets creating a narrative-driven and mind-bending music.
Cloud is made up of Charlie Atkinson, Dan Norman, Tom Collins, Alex Lièvre and Tom Tollyfield and the band evoke a ray of Cosmic Rock’n’Roll through an altered lens and their dreamy sequence-style songs.
Rising onto the scene and breaking the glass ceiling of Brighton’s music scene, Cloud headlined a show at Rossi Bar in July and “When Reapers Attack” made an amazing live performance debut at a live stream gig hosted by the bands label at The Pool Valley Live Showcase.
“When Reapers Attack” the first single from Cloud’s debut album “The Fourth Planet” is out now on all major streaming platforms.
