Stereogum Premieres Cloud's "Melting Cassatt"


"A few years ago, Tyler Taormina left New York and headed to Los Angeles, but it wasn’t the bi-coastal leap that spurred him to make music as Cloud. Both 2013’s Comfort Songs and his new album, Zen Summer, were recorded in his Long Island collaborative space, Practice Room Records. This sophomore album has been finished for a while, and now that Taormina has secured release with the the brand-new Irish label Paper Trail, we finally get to hear it. We’re premiering the first single off the album today: “Melting Cassatt” blends glossy dream-pop production with deeply confessional lyrics."
