"Touch The Clouds – ‘Ara’ by Jeff Milo"

“…I see the fading summer light…”

Summer’s almost gone and all the big albums seem like they’ve dropped.

But, we found one more potential anthem for you before August exits.

“Nomads,” off of Touch The Clouds latest EP, finely frames that nervous-energy incited by how fleeting the season’s sweltered, spurring magic can be; edgy and yearning with its guitar riffs mimicking an accelerating coupe’s revving engine, steaming along a starlit road, packed with gear, a quick little tune, here and gone before you know it, proto-emo-rock revivalist’s ballad belting out restless words that can’t go to sleep yet seem sure nothing lasts.

Particularly summer.

With tantrum guitar riffs and rolling rhythms and exertive, soaring rhythms, Touch The Clouds are a straightforward guitar-bass-drum strike of ominous angst undercut with embracing, summery hooks – that transitory glimpse when post-hardcore started fizzling in the not-yet-mid-90’s and pre-emo started actualizing in the not-quite-yet-late-90’s… A more rigid pop/rock, getting-in, knocking it around for about 3-minutes and slamming it shut.

That sounds like an ideal live musical manifestation for what could be one of your last summer concerts.

See them live: August 16th at the Magic Stick - Metro Times Detroit's Music Blahg

"Touch the Clouds"

Four-piece with a big, big sound that’s just a little more complex than your average four-four rock and roll. Anthemic choruses and just the right amount of ringing guitar. - Metro Times

Bio

Touch the Clouds is a brand new project, featuring members of Few and Far Between, Red Iron Orchestra and Lovesick. Influenced by bands like the Foo Fighters, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Pixies and Fugazi among many others, TTC plays organic guitar-centric indie rock with melodic, emphatic vocals. The band is completely DIY and follows the path cut for them by the punk rock community that they grew up in. They write, record and produce everything on their own, yet sound as big and as polished as the bands that have a 'machine' working behind them. Hard work and tireless devotion to their craft keep this new band moving ever forward.
