The Clouds Are Ghosts is an electro-organic project that seeks to evoke a visceral response by taking listeners on a journey which leaves them feeling both hopeful and empowered. We do this by creating haunting music which is juxtaposed by uplifting lyrics.

Biography

The Clouds are Ghosts is based in Austin, Texas. Formed in 2008, what started as a quartet has since evolved into a sextet. Simple sequenced electronics are typically the skeleton onto which the muscle of an intuitive rhythm section and warm synthesizers are added. Our skin is composed of dreamy piano, tastefully toned dual guitar work and powerful yet delicate vocals. Together we come together to create a large sound that despite its epic nature at times maintains dynamics. Since our inception, we have played in support of national touring acts such as MGMT, DJ Spooky, Zach Hill of Hella, The Appleseed Cast, The Black Heart Procession, The Crystal Method and Mogwai. A great deal of our music is influenced by Pink Floyd, Radiohead, M83, and post rock music. We have two releases - an eponymous full length album and a five song EP thus far, and are finishing up our third album with will be released near the end of 2012. We are a family. Music is our life. We have been through a lot together, and though there have been rough times we have stuck together due to the fact that we make music we think deserves to be heard, and are willing to work as hard as it takes to make that happen.
